I've been experiencing some possible warning signs that my trusty rusty SE/30 40MB hard drive may be heading toward hospice care, and so I've begun the process of looking for a replacement.

I've found this site: http://www.cf2scsi.com

They offer SCSI to Compact Flash drive emulators that claim to be able to emulate almost any brand of SCSI drive.

Has anyone had any experience with this outfit by chance?

If so, has anyone tried using one of these with a Mac SE/30? I'm hoping to figure out what would be the best option to pick as they have so many choices and emulated drive models.

It is wiser to buy a normal SCSI HDD that is hundred times cheaper than this unless you are bothered by the noise of working hard drives...

And why is that exactly?

Hey, thanks Wayne! This is what I ended up going with. Works like a champ! Now my SE/30 has a total of 8GB of storage capacity. Ha! Might as well be infinite. King of the 80's indeed.

The seller of the SCSI2SD has plenty it would seem, and based on how well the installation went, I vouch for the recommendation.
