SCSI Hard Drive

I have just been given a SCSI hard drive for my system which currently has 2 IDE drives installed.
The only way I can get Windows 98 to recognize it is if I check the removable media box.

I don't think it's running as fast as it should be,.

Has anyone else mixed SCSI & IDE drives under Windows, and if so, what's the best solution.

Any ideas would be a help.

It should be a problem mixing the diferent drives, also you shouldn't have to tick the removable media box. Does windows auto detect the scsi card even you don't have the HD installed?

Under System in the control panel, it detects the card & the drive with no problems.  When the Removable Media isn't checked, I cannot access the drive at all.

I also have a SCSI CD writer attached and that works fine.  The SCSI ID's are different (I checked that first) and both seem to work.  I did a speed test on the HD with the CD writer software and it states it's slower than the IDE drive.  

It's got me beat!

How about termination ? Can you represent SCSI chain here and
point where terminators are set ?

Are both scsi drives on the same card or is the CDR drive on it's own proprietary card?  Are they internal, external or one of each?

I've had similar problems with a Win 95 system.. I also had to check the "removable media" option to get the drives to be recognized.. but since they are removable I guess I didn't really make too much of it..

in either case, if it recognizes the drive, leave it alone and run with it..

I've tried a variety og things - Terminating the the drive (as standard, the cd was terminated and still is).  They are both on the same card.

I think I'll just have to grin and bear it, but I wanted to make sure that it was possible and that I wasn't just fluking the connection (some people in the know said I shouldn't mix 'n match SCSI & IDE.

Looks like it can be done!

Thanks to all of you for your help and idea's!
