In doing research for my Q950 upgrade and hacks, I came across an animal called a SCSI-IDE bridge (please note that this Q950 is my first REAL dealing with SCSI and/or NuBus macs on such a technical level).
There is a nice selection of these devices at www.micolandusa.com and allmost all of the are Acard products. I have been looking at these and think I know what I need, but wanted to poll the group and see if anyone has ever used/played around with these.
The theoretical limit for devices on the Q950 is 20 (with #7 being the CPU), but the stock OS (7.1) only supports 7 devices. I believe the machine is running 8.1 (I can't remember and it is not with me at the moment), but I will up the OS and CPU as far as I can.
My thinking with this bridge is that I can handle significanlty larger dirves. I was thinking of dropping a couple of 200GB hard drives in if this works okay. From what I read, I would not need anything special on the OS to access the full drives - breaking the 7 device limit will be a different thread later on, but if anyone has any insight on that, post away!
