Default Help installing SCSI hard Drive?

sponsored links

 
Hi,

I recently bought a new seagate scsi hard drive and i can't seem to get my computer to recognize it. It recognized the scsi adapter card right away and installed the drivers, but the hard drive wont show up at all. I've just about given up and decided to ask for help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hard Drive : Seagate Cheetah 73GB 10K U160 80P 16MB ST173404LCV
Adapter : ADAPTEC ASC-29160N LVD 160/M SCSI Adapter

Is the drive showing up in device manager? Have you partitioned and formatted the drive?

No it's not showing up in the device manager. The hard drive powers up perfectly fine it just isnt getting recognized by windows.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the termination of the first and last devices. I'm pretty new scsi so im not sure how to terminate drives.

Did you check the BIOS, if it shows there ? If yes, then check it is formatted in some architecture Windows can recognize it. If it looks unformatted, then you can do it in command prompt with the fdisk function.

The drive should have come with terminating resistors or a switch which controls built-in resistors. Refer to the hard drives manual for correct termination. You also need to set a device number. This is usually done with jumpers. As Tence said, check the BIOS to see if the drive shows up, however you check the SCSI card's BIOS, not the regular BIOS.
