PCD-47 Firmware v 3.2
Using the PCD-47B on a PS/2
Use a common FD MCS-700/Patriot , Buslogic BT-646, or Adaptec AHA-1640. These will not show up under Set and View SCSI Devices, so you can insert and eject devices without having to reboot.
Stuff I have Used So Far:
PCD-47B Under NT4 SP6a
PCD-47B Jumper Blocks
SCSI ID Jumpers (From sticker on
SCSI ID to Slot ID Table
The manual and the sticker agree on the SCSI ID to Slot ID. Look at the drive with the SCSI ID block on the upper left side and the option jumper block on the upper right. It is backward to the sticker's layout, but to me it makes more sense.
Terminator (I'll be baaack...)
Option Jumper Block
First, the mounting screw on the outer side of the front of the PCMCIA socket tends to come loose and rattle about. Metal bit floating about inside of an enclosure with energized parts...
Second - this mounting screw is above the Compact Flash socket. Once this screw comes out, the metal crossbrace under the PCB that it threads into may move out of alignment, making it difficult to screw that side of the PCMCIA socket down. If the crossbrace is hard to reach, you can detach the CF socket's black thermoplastic cover with the two screws at the rear of the CF socket. Careful, leave the white plastic part on the PCB!
Third - If you use too long of a mounting screw on the front by the Compact Flash socket, the CF card will never fully seat! Don't fret, there were six available mounting holes to use. Five out of six ain't bad...
The PCD-47B works far better than an MC-Disk. My issue is that Micro$oft NT4 won't let me rename the drive, so I see Removeable Drive (E:) and so on, but I'd like to see WHAT media the device is for (PCMCIA, SM, CF)....
