Introduction to the C1716T HP 1.3GB SCSI Optical Drive
The C1716T HP 1.3GB SCSI Optical Drive is a full height internal optical drive that uses SCSI interface to connect to a computer. It uses magneto-optical technology to read and write data to 1.3 GB WORM (write once, read many) and MO (magneto-optical) disks. The drive provides a high-capacity, durable, and reliable storage solution for data backup and archival purposes.
It is important to note that C1716T is an older technology and may not be compatible with newer systems or may have limited storage capacity compared to newer storage options. It may also require specific hardware and software to run and may not be supported by newer operating systems.
Compatibility of the C1716T with different systems and operating systems
The C1716T HP 1.3GB SCSI Optical Drive is compatible with older computer systems that have a SCSI interface and support for the drive's physical form factor. The drive may not be compatible with newer systems that do not have a SCSI interface or support for full-height internal drives.
In terms of operating systems, the C1716T is compatible with older versions of Windows and Mac OS. However, support for the drive may be limited or non-existent on newer versions of these operating systems. It is recommended to check the manufacturer's website or documentation for specific information on compatibility with your system and operating system before purchasing or attempting to install the C1716T.
Additionally, it is important to check the compatibility of the drive with your system before you proceed with installation. Ensure that your system meets the minimum requirement for running the drive and that the necessary software and drivers are available for your operating system.
Installation and setup of the C1716T
Here are the general steps for installing and setting up the C1716T HP 1.3GB SCSI Optical Drive:
- Power off your computer and unplug it from the electrical outlet.
- Open the computer case and locate an available internal SCSI connector on the motherboard.
- Connect the C1716T drive to the internal SCSI connector using the SCSI cable provided.
- Secure the drive in place with the screws provided.
- Close the computer case and plug the computer back in.
- Power on the computer and enter the computer's BIOS settings.
- Configure the SCSI settings in the BIOS, such as setting the drive's SCSI ID and configuring SCSI termination.
- Save the changes and exit the BIOS.
- Install the necessary software and drivers for the drive on your computer. These can typically be found on the HP website or on a CD that came with the drive.
- Once the drive is set up and configured, you can use it to backup or store data as previously mentioned.
It is important to note that the specific installation and setup process may vary depending on the computer's operating system and the version of the C1716T drive you are using. It is always recommended to refer to the manufacturer's documentation for detailed instructions on installation and setup.
Also, it is important to check the compatibility of the drive with your system before you proceed with installation. Ensure that your system meets the minimum requirement for running the drive and that the necessary software and drivers are available for your operating system.
Using the C1716T for data backup and archiving
The C1716T HP 1.3GB SCSI Optical Drive is primarily used for data backup and archiving. Here are the general steps for using the drive for this purpose:
- Insert a blank MO or WORM disk into the C1716T drive.
- Launch the software or application that will be used to write data to the disk. This can be backup software, archiving software, or a file manager with built-in support for optical drives.
- Select the data that you want to backup or archive. This can be a single file, multiple files, or an entire folder.
- Initiate the backup or archiving process. The software will then write the selected data to the disk.
- Once the process is complete, remove the disk from the drive and label it with the date and contents of the backup or archive.
- Store the disk in a safe and secure location.
It is important to note that the C1716T HP 1.3GB SCSI Optical Drive uses WORM (write once, read many) and MO (magneto-optical) technology, which means that once data is written to the disk, it cannot be modified or deleted. This makes it a suitable option for long-term data archival.
It is also important to note that the drive is an older technology, and may have limited storage capacity compared to newer storage options. It may also require specific hardware and software to run and may not be supported by newer operating systems.

About Refurbished Products
Magneto-Optical Drives are hybrid drives that can write or read data from a magneto optical disk. These disks are almost similar to the diskettes but are larger in size. These storage drives are not popular due to the new flash drives and other optical disk options. But they are still used in specialized applications where their unique features are desirable.
Salient Features of Magneto Optical Disks
These are high-capacity external storage drives. They use magnetic and laser to read and write technology to squeeze a lot of information into a small area. The capacity varies, where you can have a 9.1GB MO disk and 2.6GB MO Disks. The memory capacity of your MO optical disks will determine the type of optical drive you will buy for your system. Different optical drives can read or write data to an optical drive of a specific capacity. As a result, a magneto optical drive has the disk size it operates with appended to it. For example, 1.3GB Optical Drive or 9.1GB Optical Drive.
Some MO disks are rewritable, while others are WORM disks. Rewritable means you can erase the existing data and write a new one, while WORM MO disks do not allow that. From the name, WORM stands for write once-read many. This means data is written into the disks once and can be read as many times as possible. Such storage disks do not allow data modification or deletion and are useful in many applications such as military and tax force.
Automatic Error Detection by Optical Drives
A magneto optical drive can detect any disk errors and relay the same information to the operating system. While this is a desirable property, it results in slower write speeds while write speed is not affected. Information verification is the desired feature for sensitive applications such as 3D modeling.
MO Disks Vs Diskettes
Magneto-optical disks have a higher capacity and a faster data rate. They are also more reliable than diskettes. As we can see, these hybrid disks are much better than diskettes in many ways but are slower compared to optical disks.
