Got a SCSI HD on XP PC - no problems. Soon as I attach a JAZ drive, I get a message on boot-up "insufficient termination detected on the LVD/SE connectors". Be very grateful for explanations. It doesn't affect the PC nor the use of the Jaz drive. The cable from the controller card and the hard drive has a terminator on the end of the cable AND I have set the terminator switch on the back of the Jaz drive to the far right ( terminated, I believe).OK, doesn't appear to cause problems ( yet lol) but am keen to read of any explanations Thanks
if so you should not activate termination on the jaz or hd if you have a terminator at the end of the cable
depending on your scsi card, ideally you should have the hd on an lvd cable, probably 68 pin cable (pins on the cable, not on the device)with a terminator to run at maximum speed.
then you should connect the jaz drive to a 50 pin cable (pins on cable, holes on the cable sockets) you should not need to terminate this cable if you can terminate on the jaz drive itself, but if you have a cable terminator you should leave the jaz unterminated.
mrsdsgs has said it definitively, I only speak from my own experience and suggest that if you have only one cable from host card to HD and on to the Jaz drive then make sure the HD is not terminated............................
Fit the Jaz drive next and if you have a terminator block fit that at the end of the cable.
I once had HD, CDR, scanner and Jaz all on the same cable. I confess now that almost every termination was initially set wrongly, and I wondered why when I had used the scanner, Windows fell over and needed re-installing!........Well it worked most of the time didn't it!
The HD is on the internal connector of the 29160 controller card. The jaz drive is external, so is plugged into the external plug of the controller card. This constitutes two separate cables? I only get this message now I've upgraded to XP. No message when it was Win98.
