SUN SCSI drives on a PC

I have some old Connor 1 Gig hard drives that are external SUN SCSI Hard drives. When I connect the drives individually to my Adaptec 2940 SCSI card they work fine. I can format with no problem under Windows 2000. When I chain more than one drive on the same SCSI the SCSI BIOS sees all the drives, each with a unique SCSI ID, but Win2k only sees the first drive.

On the back of the SUN case it says something about Auto Terminate. I assume each drive in the casing is auto terminating, I can remove the SCSI termination from the end of the bus and the first drive works fine. I check on the drive and there is no markings to tell what the sets of pins do.

Any ideas how to get more than one drive the be recognized in Win2k.
