Oh no! My SCSI CD Rom let out the magic smoke!

There was a “Pop!” and a bad smell. Looks like one of the chips failed. It’s all surface mount so there’s no chance to fix it, especially as the chip that failed is a large QFP with about a hundred legs.

Sorry Greg! I only got to use it once or twice.
