Yamaha cd-r scsi drive disappears after

By dr_t ·
I have a Yamaha 4416 SCSI cd-rw drive connected to an Adaptec 2930 SCSI controller along with external scsi zip and jaz drives). When I boot up after newly installing the cd-rw, it is detected and functions correctly. After leaving the machine on for a day or two, the cd-r disappears from the machine. After I turn it off and disconnect the cable and reconnect it, the cd-r returns to the machine for another day or so and then disappears again. Termination for all devices is correct. The cables have been changed three times. The CD-RW has been changed once. The same problem has been happening with an Adaptec 2910 SCSI controller that was in the machine first. I am very bewildered.

Check if you have any powermanagement functions set to "on". Also check if have the newest driver for your SCSI Controller. The External devices may also affect the system. Disconnect your external devices (make sure you also terminate your scsi board for that), then look if your CD-R disappears again. Devices which are meant for protable usage, like zip and jaz drives, may cause other devices on the scsi bus function erraticaly.

My father has this drive and the same problem. One of the latest Flash updates is "suppose" to fix the problem, but we haven't found this the case. He only looses the drive on a warm boor though, and a cold boot, power off machine then on, always detects drive again.
