My Daynafile has two 5.25" drives, 360K and 1.2MB. Its power supply uses a
5-pin DIN connector. Output is rated at +5V 2.0A, +12V 0.5A, -12V 0.5A. (I
can't imagine the -12V is used.)

My unit is probably not a Daynafile II though; apparently the II used a
different type of power supply.

The hqx extension indicates that the files have been encoded using BinHex.
This is basically a Mac equivalent of uuencoding, except it knows about
resource and data forks.

The Read_Before_Downloading file which used to be on (that
server is down now, unsurprisingly) said:

These files are for use with the DaynaFILE and non-PCI based Macintosh
machines. Beware that these files are PASSWORD PROTECTED. Version 3.1 of
the software is free of charge, and requires no ROM upgrade. Version 4.1 is
not free of charge and requires a ROM upgrade.

For information on passwords or ROM upgrades, please contact:

Intel's "support" for Dayna products is pathetic, not much point in asking
them for help.

My DaynaFile has EPROM version 3.1. If anyone has a Daynafile with a later
version EPROM, please let me know! To determine EPROM version, you need to
take the unit apart. I would also like to know the password for the
DaynaFILE4_1 file. Ideally, the updated EPROM would allow the drives to be
used with any computer with a SCSI interface.
