XP can't recognize SCSI Ultra320 hard Drive


First, determine if your "motherboard" will support a SCSI hard drive interface. The type of SCSI drives that are available are Wide Ultra SCSI (40MB/sec), Wide Ultra 2 SCSI (80MB/sec), Ultra 160 SCSI (160MB/sec) and Ultra 320 SCSI (320MB/sec). Today's standard for SCSI drives is the SCA SCSI which has an 80 pin female cable to drive information from the drive to the system board.

Set the jumpers. The drive should have jumpers on it that were set by the manufacturer. Setting the jumpers allows the drive to be recognized by your computer's hardware. If the jumpers have not been set, you will need to set the jumper of the primary drive to "Master," and if you are installing a secondary drive, the jumpers would be set to "Slave." The master drive is the drive that the computer boots to first when it starts up. The jumpers are pins located on the block or end of the hard drive.Resetting the BIOS default should make the system recognize the drive. Or Press F6 to install third-party SCSI drivers.

Trying to find the jumper settings for a Seagate 36G 80PINS SCSI 15K RPM HDD Hard Drive with an apparent part number 8E036JO (all my Google searches say it's a Maxtor), but the one I have is Seagate....


SCSI hard drives and devices have a jumper setting to configure the SCSI ID.
Each SCSI device must have a different ID.
The jumper/s are set for the following positions across 3 pairs of pins
: : : = SCSI ID = 0 no jumpers - usually for the boot hard drive
: : I = SCSI ID = 1
: I : = SCSI ID = 2
: I I = SCSI ID = 3
I : : = SCSI ID = 4
I : I = SCSI ID = 5
I I : = SCSI ID = 6
I I I = SCSI ID = 7
This gives a total of 8 possible SCSI devices on one SCSI controller.

I am trying to install window xp2 in my system and having seagate 7200.10 barracuda 160 gb but setup works only upto 27% and a problem occer that disk may be damage or check that SCSI is terminated.


Hi,
I've got bad news for you . Your hard drive is damaged for sure and you will need to replace it . It's totaly impossible to install a OS on a damaged drive and at least not recommended .
To retreive data , you will need to disconnect the drive and read it in a external box from a healthy computer .
The chance that the issue would be due to a defect SCSI connection is extremely small .
Regards .

I want to retrieve data from an old 50-pin hd from my old mac. Anybody got a solution?


There are two ways of retrieving data from a SCSI hard drive.
1. Connect the SCSI hard drive to a different SCSI connector on the same data cable, make sure this hard drive has a different SCSI ID from the first hard drive or other SCSI devices in your system. When you boot up your MAC you should see the second SCSI hard drive, You can then copy off your data or remove the redundant files and keep the old hard drive in your system as a 2nd hard drive.
2. Connect the old SCSI hard drive to a SCSI USB hard drive adapter. Then connect it to the USB port on the MAC and you should see this as an external hard drive.

SCSI Hard drives


i think you have two connections to SCSI drives not one to ide and one to scsi. anyway, if you have a SCSI controller card, you only need to connect do SCSI drives. only.

About SCSI


Replace the hard drive with a drive that is the same type and the same size, or larger. It will rebuild itself.

By same type I mean that the connector on the back of the drive and the speed of the drive interface must be the same. If the new drive spins at a different rate it will not create a problem, except that if it is slower it will make read/writes slower. If it is larger it will only use part of its capacity, matching the capacity of the other drives.

Note that if you were to replace all drives with larger drives (one at a time) the capacity of the entire array would be the same as the original. If you want a larger array it must be built from the start with that larger capacity.

Take out the bad drive. If you can get the exact same drive, do it, otherwise look it up on the manufacturers web site to find out size and type.

While there are a few possible RAID configurations that you could be using on that server, the chances are overwhelming that it is RAID level 5 that you are using. This RAID level is tolerant of a single drive failure. If you lose another drive before your new drive rebuilds your data will be lost. Hopefully you have a backup.

RAID 5 stripes the data and the parity data across all available drives and when a drive fails, the missing data is rebuilt on the fly from the parity data. When a replacement drive is installed the parity data is used to rebuild the data that belongs on that drive. The advantages of RAID 5 are fault tolerance (of a single drive) and speed because each drive only has to provide or write its portion of the total data being accessed or written.

Need to Make Intel DG35EC MoBo Boot From a SCSI Drive


In your bios change the boot order so that your SCSI drive is listed in the #1 slot. Save and exit. This will tell your system to always look at this drive first when booting up. Hope this helps.

Hey there

The most common cause is that setup does not have the driver for a SCSI device or is detecting storage devices in the wrong order, such as that CD-ROM drive first.
Press F6 when setup first starts and provide a driver for the mass storage device that will hold the operating system files.

Check to make sure all adapters and controllers are working properly.
Check power to all devices. Reseat adapters and controllers.

For SCSI devices ensure:
1. The SCSI cabling is properly installed.
2. SCSI devices are terminated.
3. SCSI devices are correctly addressed. And
4. The BIOS correctly recognizes all SCSI adapters.
Also, be sure the SCSI boot drive is addressed as 0.

Check the manufacturer's recommedation for configuring SCSI adapter and Hard Disk Drives. Try replacing the adapter before replcing the drive(s).

For EIDE Drives:
1. Check the controller.
2. Ensure file I/O and disk access are set to standard. And
3. Ensure that the system drive is the first device recognized by the controller.

For IDE and ESDI drives:
1.Check the cabliing and controller.
2. Check the Drive setup in the BIOS for master/slave relationships. And
3. Ensure the drive is properly recognized in the BIOS.

if you just goto hp.com and search on live chat and a link will come up.. they should be able to help unless it's too old since i'm not sure what generation we are on now..

good luck, hope this helps a little..d
