TV and Movies by Joan E. Nevertheless, an Ultra controller can still connect to one of those old devices. So, the drives and the cables are fine. Sat Aug 14, 1: The pin adapters have a SYN jumper but that didn’t seem to help any other than it didn’t hang on the drives.

David Katzmaier updates his advice for cord-cutters, the Marriott cyberattack may be the work of Chinese spies, and Intel chips score a breakthrough.

Moreover, we had consolidated new and legacy devices under a common controller and had room to connect more.

Max Storage Devices Qty. No luck using Channel B, same behavior.

Sat Aug 14, 3: Phones by Shara Tibken Dec 6, Don’t cut the cord on cable like a rookie The 3: To make our test more interesting, we added cntroller of the old Seagate drives to the unused channel of the Adaptec controller. A third connector on one of the channels allows you to connect legacy 8-bit devices.

Companies should evaluate Ultra to address current needs, and consider future evolutions in their long-term plans. Sep 4, Posts: Lenovo has found people buy its Qualcomm-powered always-connected PCs more for their long battery life than the fact they’re always connected.


Sat Aug 14, 2: Samsung and Qualcomm phone prototypes tease our 5G future But you still have to wait for the real thing.

The latest version of SCSI, Ultra, maintains connectivity to controoller many as 15 devices and supports a maximum bus length of 12 metres, but doubles the data transfer rate of its predecessor, Wide Ultra2 SCSI, to MBps mega bytes per second.

Need help with Adaptec 39160 SCSI controller

It is currently set at the default of The also correctly negotiated transfer speeds of MBps for the new drives and 40MBps for the old one. My gut feel says that the controller is good and the problem is in the drive configuration but I just can’t pin it down.

When done scanning, it shows no drives present. In fact, manufacturers of many disparate classes of devices have focused on SCSI specifications for scxi, standards-based connectivity to multiple platforms. To be successful in that area, SCSI needs to overcome its distance limitation, where it probably pales the most in comparison with Fibre Channel. I have swapped drives around and still the same behavior. Phones by Jessica Dolcourt Dec 10, These drives, which are also available in 18GB and 73GB capacities, spin at 10, aadaptec, boast exceptionally fast seek times, and support transfers of MBps.

Adaptec SCSI Card 39160 – storage controller – Ultra160 SCSI – PCI 64 Series

Maintaining backward-compatibility as it evolves to meet future needs ssi no doubt the main reason for the popularity and longevity of the SCSI standard. This obvious management simplification adapyec a device working when the optimal transfer rate cannot be maintained, and makes the previously inflexible SCSI more forgiving of configuration errors or minor component failures.


The ID’s on the drives are set up properly. The popularity of SCSI is built on rigorous protocol specifications that define how SCSI host adapters, peripheral devices, and connectivity cables work together.

TV and Movies by Joan E. The has two separate channels, each capable of connecting as many as 15 devices and moving data at rates as fast as MBps. Phones by Jessica Dolcourt Dec 5, In addition to its staggering controlleer rate, Ultra offers unprecedented flexibility in mixing SCSI devices with different capabilities because it can automatically negotiate a lower connection speed for a device. Feb 12, Posts: Controllre by Shara Tibken Dec 6, Gaming by Lori Grunin Dec 13, Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion.

And, to detect possible data-bit loss, Ultra introduces an error-control mechanism called:
