Problem with scsi card

By AndyC ·
I have installed a DC-315U PCI SCSI card into a PC running Windows 2000 and it appears in the devices list correctly, but I can not get the system to detect the external SCSI devices attached to the card correctly.

I have a Ricoh CDRW (MP6200s) attached as the first device setting id 1). and this works correctly, when terminated.

But when I add my Umax astra scanner (1220s) as the 2nd device (setting id 5). Neither the scanner nor the cdrw show. even though the scanner is terminated correctly.

Any ideas what I could try?

Make sure only the last device on the chain is terminated.

Hi mdelyea,

How could the CDRW be terminated without a physical terminator?

If it was terminated then surely it would work as though there was only the cdrw on the chain?

If the cdrw is terminated internally, try to connect it at the end of the chain. Put the scanner on first and then the cdrw, the id numbers really don't matter, as long as they are different, but you could change them so the scanner is lower than the cdrw. Many of the external cdrw's are actually internally actively terminated. You may also check the manufactor's page to see if there is a jumper setting on the cdrw to switch off the termination.

Hope this helps,

Vickie

Hi

I didn't manage to get the scanner and the cdrw working although I did get the cdrw working on it's own.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers
Andy
