I have a piece of hardware hangin on a SCSI bus.  It has a SCSI API.  How do I send commands to ( and receive responses from ) the SCSI bus?

If there is an interface VCL, it would be appreciated, or just info on how to do it, as it should really be threaded...

have you tried using the DeviceIOControl API Call...

The DeviceIoControl function sends a control code directly to a specified device driver, causing the corresponding device to perform the specified operation.

use Creatfile etc to talk to the device use DeviceIOControl...

Sorry Boris, I have no clue how to use the command to talk to an Adaptec 2940 card to send a SCSI command to a particular LUN/ID device.
