    Default Model 340 and Plextor 63CS CD Drive

    I know there has been many threads over the subject of CD drives on
    older machines. But I have not been able to find anything specific to
    this problem.

    It is a Model 340, has a Plaxtor 63CS CD drive. However it hangs at
    868 (initializing SCSI adapter). I've tried the CD:

    Terminated and unterminated, internally and externally at varous SCSI
    ID's, with parity and wihtout parity, all combinations I can think of.
    Another SCSI CD drive was recoginised immediatly (however that one had
    the 512 byte issue and could therefore not be used as a boot device).

    Does anyone have a solution to it, short of using 'true blue'. Which
    any other time I would use a 7210 (but don't have one).


    Thanks

    could you have a SCSI ID conflict?

    Kent,

    Well, I don't think so, hdisk0 is at 6 and hdisk1 at 0 the CD I'm
    pretty sure I have at 5. But I think I might try other ones, had
    issues before about devices only work on spcific ID's

    Thanks

    Is it labed 6Plex at the front and identifies like:

    Vendor: PLEXTOR Model: CD-ROM PX-6XCS Rev: 1.00
    Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02

    this on the SCSI bus? If yes, I had no luck at all with this drive
    on my 320h. I suspect because it can only do 5.00MHz synchronous SCSI.
    I had luck with any other Plextor I tried (Plex 12/20, UltraPlex, 12Plex),
    but not with the 6Plex.

    HTH,
    Uli

    I'll have to check but I think it may well be the model, you refenced
    as not working. That sounds a very possible explination, the syptoms
    are very much like a mismatch of that type.

    Thanks
