SCSI2SD-type adapter made from Raspberry Pi

I saw a link to this (original in Japanese) on hackaday.com, where someone with an X68000 has made what looks like a SCSI2SD from a raspberry pi and a handful of 74xx chips. With a pi zero going for $5, could be a nice cheap solution for the blizzard scsi kit and so on. It's not bus powered though, so I guess it would have to be an external unit.

I ran this through Google translate, which worked well enough

Already discussed here: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=86463
Still waiting on someone to try it, the scsi disk part should work.

I originally wanted to comment on that thread but - for some reason - I changed my mind.

What I found interesting is that he wired up the RPI straight to his X68000 first - without 74LS641 transceivers.
Also there are reports it worked with RPI A+ and RPI Zero.

Yeah, not exactly welcoming is it. Oh well.

I liked the concept of providing multiple virtual devices through one unit. It would let you mount .iso images as a SCSI CD-ROM. I think SCSI2SD v6 can do that but there are varying reports of the stability of that and last time I asked it was advisable to use the v5.

I wouldn't worry about the messing in that thread too much - there was one person at the heart of all that with a history of filling up multiple threads with irrelevant and incorrect rubbish, and so tolerances are pretty short whenever he tries to do it again. In general we're a pretty welcoming bunch here

As for the SCSI Pi project, it does sound very useful indeed for many users.
