I've recently acquired a TORCH-725 which has this RO200
series hard drive in it, trouble is when I took everything
out of the TORCH case for first inspection I heard something
'ting' off one of the platters in the drive. Opening it up
to have a look, well a little dust can't be as bad as debris
that goes 'ting', I found a 12mm long 2.7mm dia. roll pin
lying in one corner. Anyone have a clue where this may have
come from? Dare I power the drive without it? This may
eventually be the only option if I can't re-install the pin.
While this is an RO200 series I don't know which one. The
series seems to run from 5MB to 40MB and I'd like to know
which one this is likely to be.
Assuming this drive needs to be replaced can I use a 40MB
SCSI drive on the Torch SCSI board and bypass the SCSI to
ST506 interface? This would be the prefered eventual solution
as I have a few 20MB to 200MB SCSI drives I could use.
