CD Burning SCSI and Parity
Posted on 1998-01-07
I have a Ricoh MP6200S accompanied by a Segate 1GB SCSI drive along with a 2940 Standard PCI controller
what im wondering is how to set these up PERFECTLY without any problems (im making coasters :~(
CURRENTLY the card is terminated, as is the SCSI HDD butthe CD-R is not
Parity is ON on the HDD and also it is jumpered to
"drive receives power from SCSI Bus AND power cable"
where can i learn about parity on the SCSI bus and also power via the scsi bus options?
how should these be set?
and how should i setup the cards bios? it has many options including adjust the Sync transfer rate termination and so on as well
this is the SECOND CD-R of this model that has had this problem so im now at the point of thinking its the SCSI setup or the machine itself
here are some other details on the machine
64MB 60 NS EDO RAM
6.4 GB IDE WD Primary Master (but system is set to boot off the 1gb SCSI)
4MB STB 968 based velocity card
OSR 2 + Easy CD Pro 2.11c being used (also using image files and also the burn passed the test)
AHA 2940 S76 - 1.23 bios revision
I also have a SECOND machine which i burn cd's on regularly, so i know what im doing etc etc
the machine is not running "too many tasks at the time"
no screen saver either
