    hi,

    I try to install a 9,1 GB harddisk to my SE/30 but I just can't get that &%$#^&@ thing to work... :(

    the problem is that the computer can't recognize the drive even though several websites say it should work.

    I formated the quantum in an beige G3 in standard format (HFS) but it still doesn't work.

    - the machine is supposed to run system 7.5
    - the HD is a Quantum Atlas V ultra160 SCSI

    can anybody help me before I give it to an Apple dealer to have it installed by a technician?

    thanks

    update:

    I formated und updated the drive with "Lido7" (I found it here...)

    it should work, but it doesn't... :mad:

    I figure that it has something to do with the jumper configuration, but I can't figure out what...

    I would be very thankful if someone could help me out...

    Well I know the mac Plus is supposed to support up to 2TB of Hard Disk Space, so I assume the SE/30 would also.

    I don't understand why you want a 9.1GB Hard Disk in a Mac SE/30.

    The reason why the Hard Disk may not want to work is because the hard disk is Ultra160 SCSI the SE/30 has a normal SCSI bus, which may be too slow for the Ultra160 SCSI HD (Just guessing)

    thanks,

    I want to use the se/30 as a low budget fileserver, therefore the big HD...

    I set the jumpers to "narrow-mode", this should fix the bus bandwidth issue.

    I think I'll give the machine to an Apple technician to install it if noone else has any ideas - I can't fix it myself :(
