Unfortunately, to get a good picture of the drive, would require some serious disassembly: It is fairly well surrounded by metal and circuitry. I had to take 2 boards and one metal piece off just to see the model number! > Does it connect > directly to the IEEE bus or via an additional interface box? It connects directly to the IEEE bus - internally, that goes to a large (18" x 8") circuit board which, in turn, is connected to a 2nd board which sits atop the HDD itself. A 3rd circuit board under the drive is, I assume, a Priam board, containing the driver circuitry. I've since re-assembled everything again, & don't fancy taking it apart - some of the screws are a bit fiddly to reach. Cheers, Ade.
