All you can do is hope that your Matrox Parhelia PCI-X card works in it, though the odds are against it.

And the seller does not ship to Canada! For that price, I figured he'd ship to an Antarctic research station.

This guy again. I thought I put him in his place. He's a scammer that has no clue what's he's doing. Try's to get you to deal off ebay and what not.

I don't see why those are in this thread? Those are standard normal prices for those items these days.

So while googling a solution for my will-not-reformat 1Gb Fujitsu/Compaq SCSI drive, I came across the following two auctions:

http://www.ebay.com/p/Fujitsu-1-1GB-Internal- … A-HDD/108780509
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fujitsu-M2694ESA-1GB- … S-/160373296943

1,600 and 2,400 bucks for a 1.1 Gb SCSI hard disk. Maybe I should try selling my broken one, I might be able to get enough out of it to buy some modern hard disks...maybe I can get more if I part it out? 🤣

Those prices are high (2x nominal) of where this sort of gear often sells which is already some of the most expensive stuff on the retro PC scene.

I was under the assumption that anything roland goes for about $400+ these days.

No, that isn't the case. It depends on the item, and deals are to be had if you avoid sellers specialised in PC gaming stuff and the uber-expensive Japanese sellers who buy items cheap in Japan and toss them on Ebay at a 300-700% mark-up.

Lovely, ten grand for some nice decoration that really isn't worth more than one.
