SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) is a set of standards for physically connecting and transferring data between computers and peripheral devices. SCSI is most commonly used for hard disks and tape drives, but it can also be used to connect other devices, including scanners and CD drives. An SCSI drive is usually referred to a disk drive that uses the SCSI standard interface and commands to connect and transfer data to/from the computer.
