Hard Drive, SCSI, Zip and a Quadra 605
Posted on 1997-06-16
I have a 1.8GB IBM external SCSI drive. I have a P6116CD. I used FWB RAID 2.x to format and mount the drive, no problems, ran it for days. Took it to my friends house. She has a Quadra 605, plugged it in and the mac locks up at the splash screen, no ext. load. Try to hold down shift at boot, same thing. Take her 7.5 disk tools and it will boot and mount but eventually crash after large file transfers.
I bought a zip drive, took it down to her place, plugged it in no problems. Took the GB drive plugged it in to the zip which is plugged in to the mac and everything mounts and works fine. Zip ID=5 GB=6. I had 7.6.1 she has 7.5.5 soon to be 7.6.1.
My question is how or what can I do to get the GB drive to mount without connected to the zip. The drive has a passive term. on it, do I need an active one? What is the difference?
I have tried HDT, RAID, SCSI Director, everything, same problem. Tried changind ID's, same. Help!!
Thank you for any reply,
