Adding a SCSI Device

Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) devices historically have been more common in Macintosh computers than in most PCs, but the daisy-chained SCSI bus is increasingly found on scanners, high-performance hard disks, recordable and rewritable CD and optical drives, and other devices.

  • Higher maximum throughput

  • More efficient multitasking

  • Support for both external and internal devices

  • Convenient daisy-chained setup
