Yes , I discovered what you said last night =)
But here is my next problem and its worrying me.
I have been creating RAID 0 single drive array for this controller and its always errored out on initializing it...I figured this whole time it was just the fact you cant really make RAID 0 with one drive (traditionally)
So that made sense to me, but now there is this same problem it fails on init of the logical drive =(
I tried to format the drive last night and it said FAIL about 1hour into the formatting of it.
Im hoping so much its not a bad drive.
Now heres the thing Im hoping it is:
I am using a 80 to 68pin SCSI converter for my drive, its ID is set to 1 and the cable has termination on the end, so its a non terminated converter.
Oddly enough or I dont know if this is right or wrong...when I look up my drive info on the controller it says its mode is SCSI-3
now question...is that my problem? would that mode cause drive to not initialize right cuz the little converter adapter is keeping drive at SCSI-3?
or am I dumb and thats how SCSI 320 just reports as SCSI-3 on this RAID controller?
Also...another question should I try the synchronous jumper on the 80 to 68pin converter...what mode is better for SCSI sync or async?
So with all this info do you think its my little converter card from 80 to 68 thats causing the issue...or is my drive bad? - Its a brand new sealed bag not refurb and not recert drive as of a week ago =(
Thanks for all your help
