View Full Version : ADAPTEC SCSI 29160N

I need some help with this device. I have just recently purchased a scsi hp scanjet 6250C and I have connected it to my device externally but I have been having trouble having my external scanner work well with my internal ultra 160 hard-drive. I was wondering how should I set it up and I also have one scsi cd-rom drive and one scsi cd-r drive on the other port. I was wondering how should I get this to work correctly or how should I terminate my devices? Thanks

The SCSI HD is on the udma 160 channel while my 2 scsi cd-rom drives are on the other chanel the scsi 2 channel with sends speeds of 20 and on the external connection it's the scsi hp scanjet scanner. Unless your asking about termination number.

crap i forgot about the internal u160 channel and the
external being shared...
if you put one nonu160 device on the u160 channel it knocks the rest of the devices down to the slowest ones speed.well as long the device is a lvd device.
i also have a 29160n and i mixed a ultra hd with a u160
hard drive and my performance went down the tubes. i had to move it to the other internal channel.
i have a external zip drive and what i did was i bought a something that uses a backplate .( one of those slots in the
back on the case where you screw a videocard in ) inside
it had a 50 pin ribbon connector and the outside it has a 50 pin narrow and that is where i connect my nonu160 external devices. i picked up mine at a local computer shop
for about $10-15 ( of the 3 i went to only one of them heard
of such a device )

It seems to me that your scanner is sharing an address with one of your internal SCSI drive. You can go into the SCSI BIOS and change the ADDRESS of the internal drive or if there is a switch on the back of the scanner, then change the scanner's ADDRESS.
I have 4 SCSI device 3 internal and a SCSI scanner which is HP too same problem as you....just had to change the Address on the scanner.
