Fitting a Non Plug n Play SCSI Adapter
Posted on 1997-09-15
I've just fitted an ADAPTEC AHA 1510 SCSI Host adapter to my Windows '95 system to enable the attachment of various peripherals. It's a non Plug and Play device, but installation is relatively easy using EZ-SCSI V4.01. However the device is not working properly.
UNDER SYSTEM PROPERTIES Win '95 tells me:-
A yellow asterisk appears next to SCSI Controller the indicating a problem.
Under the GENERAL Tab - "This device is not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed (Code 10). I have the ASPI2DOS.SYS driver installed (ala the documentation) dated12/8/96. Others have been installed also when running the EZ-SCSI software.
IRQ9 is being used. The only IRQ left on my machine. This is OK and appears to be causing no conflicts. The IRQ is selectable on the card itself using jumpers.
Input/Output range is 0140 - 015F - reported as NOT conflicting
The SCSI Explorer that comes with EZ-SCSI 4.01 states "Could not initialise ASPI for Win 32"
I wish (intially) to connect an internal EXABYTE 8505 tape drive to the SCSI card - I've attempted to do this without success so far - it came up as a B:\ FLOPPY DRIVE!!!!!
Any ideas and solutions would be much appreciated.
