I have installed a Seagate ST39103LW SCSI hard drive and Yamaha CRW4416S SCSI working great. I also have (2) IDE hard drives, working great. I purchased an IBM DDYS-T09170M SCSI for additional storage space. The BIOS recognizes the drive, add hardware wizard recognizes and automatically installs the drive. however, I cannot access or assign a drive letter to the drive. We have followed directions to the point on jumper installation, but I feel that could be the problem. We have jumpers to enable auto spin up, TI-SDTR. and to identify the SCSI ID. We do have an 80-pin to 68-pin adaptor that was purchased with the drive to ensure compatability. When I open the device manager and populate the drive, I see it is not initialized. The OS I am using is Windows XP, home edition. Any ideas on how to begin using this drive?
