SCSI Problem

I am getting the following error since adding a new scsi card from an XP PC to a Win7 PC. I had a 50 pin cable but had to buy a new card and adapter to fit the requirements of WIN7.

I get this error:


insufficient termination detected on the VD/SE connectors

Not sure where the issue lies with the card BIOS the PC BIOS or cable and adapter

No errors in device manager on pc

Can you check the termination on the devices connected to the internal and external 50-pin connectors. Terminate the SCSI devices at the ends of the cable and leave the other devices unterminated.

There is your problem :).

You shouldn't connect a 68 pins with a 50 pins. That causes trouble with the termination.

Take a look at this:

It's written for Mac, but the same for Windows.

I thought I would explain fully what we are trying to do.

We had an XP 32 bit PC with a fujitsu scanner attached . The card was a scsi 2 with a cable with 50 pins each end. All worked fine

We had to update the users PC and this was with a O/S of WIN7 64bit.

The new Win7 PC took the new SCSI card an ASC29160 no problem. When attached to the scanner via the 50 pin the scanner end and the 68 pin adapter the card end  we got the error aforementioned.

There are no settings to change on the scanner. Do we require a different cable and an adapter where the 50 50 meets 68 has jumpers.

You need something to terminate the high order bits, see top picture of https://catalog.datastoragecables.com/scsi/externaladapters/hd68-hd50/ for example.

It doesn't really matter which end of the cable you terminate the high byte since you're only using the lower 8 bits on the old scanner.

what i ended up doing was buying a cable of ebay which was 50 to 68 and it worked first time.
