• Continual CHKDSK errors

  • Are IBM SCSI drives custom?

    I have a 170 with 4 and 8GB drives and want to change to 17 GB or 36 GB drives. Is it true that the IBM drives have IBM's os/400 micro code and I can only use their drives? I know that the 36GB are working because they are being sold that way (but no larger than that). Thanks

So my first...
