I've lots of old SCSI disks for my Amigas, from Quantum LPS52 from my first A3000 to some SCA 73 GB disks. But nearly all have in common
that they are quickly aging with a variety of errors: from normal badblocks that can't be mapped anymore, because they are too many, to losing their geometry information. Sometimes HDToolBox can't read even
the geometry anymore, sometimes a lowlevel format helps, but both
means a loss of data.
My impression is that the heat inside of the A3000 is not good for the old disks and causing quick/sudden deaths.
The idea is to buy some SCSI<->SATA/ATA bridges, but they are
- ATA: Acard AEC-7720U for about 180.- EUR
- SATA: Acard ARS-2000SUP for about 250.- EUR
Do you have experience with this kind of SCSI bridges? Any feedback appreciated! :-)
