Rumor has it that Vintage Computer Festival may have mentioned these words:

Dunno how common knowledge this is, but Zip drives *require* parity; which
is why they can't be used with earlier CoCo SCSI interfaces - as those
didn't support it. (they are also only capable of SCSI ID 5 or 6, and a few
early CoCo SCSI interfaces only supported ID 0-4...) I suppose the SCSI ID
stuff could be modded pretty easily, tho.

( The new one from Cloud 9 Tech: http://www.cloud9tech.com/ does support
parity -- and they just released their IDE interface as well.)

If there's several different interfaces, and some support parity and some
do not, make sure you get one that does.
