Cant see SCSI Hdd in XP Pro
Posted on 2003-03-02
I have recently aquired a Adaptec AHA-2940U2W SCSI PCI Host card and 2 Seagate ST39103LC harddrives. I installed the SCSI Host card and fired up XP. Sure enough, XP detected and installed the drivers needed. No trouble there.
I proceeded to power down the system and installed the 2 harddrives. I used a 2 port 50pin cable connecting to 2 SCA-to-50pin converters (one for each drive). I've earlier set the harddisk ID jumpers to 0 and 1 respectively.
SCSI Bios detected the 2 harddrives fine but XP doesnt show any additional storage areas. Checking the device manager, I found two entries under "Disk Drives" named "S". Device is stated to be "working properly".
Question is, what gives? I've tested the drives before this on a system with native SCSI support (same exact setup as above) and they worked like a charm.
Any form of help is much appreciated.
