Is it on a chain with other SCSI disks? You need to make sure it's ID is set to something unique from the other devices on the same bus.

This depends on the configuration of the server, which is why I asked how it was setup before.

Is the disk on a RAID controller or a standard SCSI controller? Is the disk on a SCSI chain with other drives? If so, did you configure it's jumpers so that it has a unique SCSI ID?

I just looked up some docs on the PE1600SC and realized this is likely a front-loading hot swap disk, 80 pin. If that's the case, then it is going to be on the same RAID controller that you have the other drives on. If *that* is the case, then you need to go into the RAID controller's configuration menu and configure a RAID 0 on that one drive. This is how you get a single drive to act independently on a RAID controller.

What controller is it? The 1600SC doesn't appear to have a RAID controller by default, so I'm not sure what controller you're working with there.
