All I know is that it is an old 30 Meg ps/2_mca drive. I wouldn't waste my time. Just an opinion.

If it is from a PS/2, it may be proprietary. IBM was notorious for it back then. Also, MCA stands for Micro channel adapter. Which is also a proprietary IBM system bus. Your drive may not be compatible to todays PC's

However, you should root through IBMs support section and find the settings.

Short of that, you can experiment, I mean, generally the worse that can happen is it wont work until you guess right.

Dont hold me accountable though on that, I dont know the drive, and it may actually short a new board to hook it up.

Ask yourself, is another 30 MB even worth trying?
