 Subject: Syquest 270MB Drive - lock broke
Author: FatRakoon (90.252.171.243)

I have a Syquest 270 3.5" SCSI Drive

QUICK POST :-
The locking lever is broke. Can anyone help?
The END

LONGER POST :-
It does still seem to work fine, however, the locking lever has lost the plastic bit on the end, and I cannot seem to lock the disk in place?

I can wedge it in with a screwdriver of whatever, and I can do it for just long enough for the light to go green and it does seem to access the disk, but as soon as I move... it unlocks.

I have a good few disks for it and it would be such a shame for it to not be used.

I also have a 44MB Syquest too and ZIP 100 but the 270 Id like to use again.

I seem to find that Syquest as a company no longer exist and so Im getting nowhere in that area, but I am also wondering about making some other handle thingy for it... Is it supposed to lock in or out or up or down? I have tried pushing a little in a few directions, but Im worried in case I break it further than it already is?

Anyone offer any advise?
