Just grab any 80-pin ultra scsi drive. Just be careful about heat
dissipation though. I just bought two 73Gb scsi drives for my Ultra 2 on
ebay for $150. Make sure whatever drive you buy that it is a 1" height
drive otherwise it will NOT fit in the drive cage. Remove the existing
sleds from the quantum drive and put it on the new drive and slip it in.
Very easy to do. IIRC, the SCSI connector is a ULTRA 160, but you can use
the higher rates as it is backward compatible. The model I bought are the
Seagate Cheetah ST373307LC (UlTRA 320 80-pin SCSI drives). Make sure it is
80-pin and NOT 68-pin!!!
