Sorry, I haven't answered my mails for quite some time.  I have 
hardware problems (see below).  I tried to notify you here but
I made a type in the address, so the mail never arrived. :-(

Maybe somebody can help me with my hardware problem:

My internal harddisk is rapidly dying, every time I switch on my
TT it loses another dozen of sectors.  I bought a Quantum Fireball
1080S as a replacement but I can't get it to work.  The Adaptec
SCSI controller in an Intel box detects the harddisk, I have even
formatted it with verify.

On the TT I have tried a plethoria of different harddisk drivers,
tried out every possible combination for the jumper settings as
internal and external drive, with and without termination.  Result:
None of the drivers has even detected it.

The disk has only five jumpers:


A0-A2 are ok, the ID, what are the other two for?  Anyway, as I have
mentioned above, I've tried out all settings and none did work.

Any ideas?  If the Quantum Fireball simply doesn't work with the TT
I will resell it.  But which types will work with the TT SCSI controller?

Thanks for your help!
