    Asrock m3a785gmh/128m.
    I want to connect a lto3 tape recorder. It has a scsi port. What would be the cheapest solution?

    Thanks.

    Probably SCSI to USB. But determining which of the many "SCSI" connectors you have on your tape device will be one of the major steps in finding which solution will work or be available:

    Thank you for answering.
    I have investigated scsi usb on ebay. And they are 100usd or more. Not low priced.
    Doesn't any scsi usb adapter run with any tape drive scsi port?

    That I'm aware, any SCSI interface will not be low priced.

    1. The intended "audience' isn't desktops but instead servers. ie: build + reliability = price

    2. The SCSI market isn't a huge market by any means thus priced accordingly.

    3. Let's not even talk of compatibility on non-server enthusiast motherboards. I'd guess if price wasn't an issue, compatability would be.

    I did not know they were that expensive, unfortunately for the reasons wardog mentioned.

    The other point of my post was determining the type of SCSI connector on your tape drive, since there are multiple types. That is why I included the link to all the pictures, since we have no idea what tape drive you have.

    If we think about it, how many interfaces are even available on a mother board that are useable to connect external devices? USB and eSATA on yours.
