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!
