I have a server hard drive that's an Ulta SCSI drive that I need to do some analyst. Does anyone have a SCSI to USB adapter they could recommend, or another way to access this drive?

Do you know what type of connector it has on?

If it is a standard high density 68 pin connector, you can use the Tableau T4 SCSI Bridge.

If the drive has an SCA connector (much bigger connector and no separate power connector), you can still use the T4, however you will need to purchase an adapter (these are quite cheap from eBay

Some of the newer servers may be fitted with Serial Attached SCSI (SAS_ Drives. I believe the SOLO 4 supports these directly, however it may be possible to use a SATA to SAS adapter to connect these using a standard SATA write blocker, however as yet I have not had chance to try this for myself.

It is a 68 pin Ultra 320. The Tableau T4 looks like a great option. Thank you.

I second the T4 - mine came with the SCA adaptor but that may be because I bought the super tableau kit from data duplication (UK).
