1. Product outline
This PC card drive is designed to be connected to a personal computer to read and write PC cards (ATA type II, CompactFlash,
SmartMedia, and PCMCIA hard disks). A SCSI interface is used to
enable the device to be connected to a Macintosh, IBM PC/AT
compatible running Dos, Windows 95/NT/98, Sun Sparc and Sun Ultra
Sparc, or other personal computers.
Using with Macintosh*
Connect the card drive to the SCSI port, the standard Macintosh
hard disk interface. Some more recent Macintosh models (ex: G3,
G4) may require the addition of a PCI SCSI board. Microtech recommends Adaptec SCSI boards. Use of the PCD-47 with a Macintosh
requires the use of Macintosh mounting software to mount removable
media such as PC cards, CompactFlash, SmartMedia, and PCMCIA
hard disks. Microtech includes Software Architects DOS Mounter SE
with the Macintosh version of the PCD-47 (part no: PCD-47-MAC).
For owners of other versions of the PCD-47, this software can be
purchased as an option through Microtech along with the reader, or
may be purchased from a separate vendor. The software may also
be purchased and downloaded online at:
http://www.softarch.com/go/online.html
Using with Windows*
If you do not already have a SCSI board installed, follow the installation instructions that come with your SCSI board. The manufacturer
recommends Adaptec SCSI boards. For Dos, Windows 3.x Windows
95/NT/98, simply connect the PC Card reader to the SCSI board, or
another SCSI device, turn on the PC Card reader’s power and reboot
the computer. Your PC card reader will appear as a drive letter under
“My Computer”. You may now insert PC cards and access them as
you would a hard drive or floppy disk drive.
* The PCD-47 requires three SCSI IDs.

4. Making connections with a computer
Technical
Specifications
This drive unit connects to a computer through a SCSI cable. There
are two types of connection depending on whether or not an additional
SCSI device is to be used. These two cases are discussed later in
this section.
Troubleshooting
Note: there are several physical forms of SCSI connector. The most common SCSI
cable is included with external units. If you need a special SCSI cable, check the
SCSI connector of the computer and SCSI device to be connected and procure a
proper SCSI cable.
For connection with an IBM PC/AT compatible computer, a SCSI board must have
been previously mounted in the computer. Consult the documentation that came with
the SCSI board for installation instructions.
CAUTION: Turn off the power to the computer and SCSI device(s) before making the
connections.
Use without other SCSI devices

Termination
When this unit is the only device on the SCSI chain, or the last device
on the SCSI chain, it must be terminated.
External: attach the terminator to the SCSI connector not being used.
Internal: Default is terminated. When the termination pin jumper is
“off”, the unit is terminated. When the terminator pin jumper is “on”, the
unit is not terminated.

PCD 47
Technical
Specifications
Since the SCSI standard supports connection to one computer and up
to seven SCSI devices (including SCSI devices built into the computer), you can use several card drives in a series or connect the
PCD-47 drive to other SCSI device(s) (the PCD-47 uses three
consequtive SCSI IDs).
Plug one end of the SCSI cable to the SCSI connector, and the other
into the SCSI connector at the rear of this drive unit. Securely plug
the cable end into the connector. The order of the SCSI devices to be
connected can be changed.

SCSI ID Settings Explained
Product Outline
Windows
95/98/NT
The SCSI ID is a unique number assigned to each SCSI device.
Therefore, two devices must not have the same ID number. The SCSI
ID is independent of the order of physical device connection. In
general, SCSI ID=7 is assigned to the computer and ID numbers 0 to
6 are available for other SCSI devices. Note that SCSI IDs may have
been previously assigned to a disk drive, CD-ROM drive, or other
built-in devices in the computer. To obtain this information, refer to the
related computer and SCSI device manuals. Take care not to use the
same SCSI ID number more than once.
* The PCD-47 uses 3 SCSI IDs. See “Setting the SCSI ID” for a table
explaining the SCSI IDs.
15
NOTE: Change the SCSI ID number after turning off the power to this drive unit and
computer. The new number will not become effective while power is still turned on.
4
4
4
Setting SCSI ID (external)
For external units, you can change the value on the ID number display
window by turning the SCSI ID switch. If you encounter overlapping
SCSI IDs, reassign the ID numbers. The initial default value “4” is
assigned to all drive units in the factory before shipment. For internal
units, set the SCSI ID with SCSI ID jumpers as shown in the diagram.
In all cases, two consecutive SCSI ID numbers must be available.
A SCSI hint for Mac Users
SCSI ID=0 is assigned to the built-in hard disk drive, SCSI ID=3 to
the built-in CD-ROM drive, and SCSI ID=7 to the computer before
shipment. Therefore, SCSI ID=1, SCSI ID 2, SCSI ID=4, SCSI ID=5,
and SCSI ID=6 are available for this drive unit.
It will therefore be necessary to pay close attention to the SCSI IDs
on your Macintosh, as the PCD-47 requires three SCSI IDs. See
“Setting SCSI IDs” for an explanation of SCSI ID usage.
NOTE: SCSI ID=3 is available when the Macintosh computer has no built-in CDROM drive. For an external CD-ROM drive, SCSI IDs other than “3” may be
assigned. In either case, it is imperative to check the SCSI ID for all SCSI devices.
Also, note that the SCSI ID for the built-in hard disk drive and the computer cannot
be changed.

SCSI ID Settings for Windows Computers
SCSI IDs “0” and “1” may have been previously assigned to the built-in
hard disk drive. Therefore, the value “2” is recommended as the first
SCSI ID for this drive unit. For details, consult the manuals for your
SCSI board.
To connect the power cable, plug the end of the power cord included in
the package into the power connector on the rear of this drive unit,
then plug the other end into the AC outlet (or the computers internal
power connector for internal units). The cord should be firmly and
securely connected and should be grounded before use.
Turning on the power
For external drives, turn on the power for this drive unit, then turn on
the computer. For internal drives, after installation is complete, replace
the computer case and securely fasten the case. Replace power cords
and restart the computer.
Windows users may simply restart the computer and the unit will
appear under “My Computer” “as three drive letters. The drive letters
will vary depending on the configuration of the particular computer and
the number of devices. For further instructions see the following
section “Basic Operations (Windows)”.
Mactintosh Users should refer to the section “Using with a Macintosh
Computer”. When the computer is ready, install the software driver in
accordance with Section 6 “Using with a Macintosh computer” and

icon ejects the PC card, deletes the PC card icon and turns off the
lock indicator on this drive unit.
Troubleshooting
Do not remove the mounted PC card. If removed, the following
message appears on the screen. Put the card back into the slot where
it was.

Product Outline
For IBM PC/AT compatible computers, the lock indicator does not
light in normal cases. You can remove the PC card when the access
indicator is not lit.
NOTE: When you lock the PC card with the EZ-SCSI utility, the lock indicator lights.
In this case, unlock the PC card with the same utility, then make sure that the lock
indicator goes off before removing the PC card.
