Understanding SCSI
SCSI (pronounced “scuzzy”) stands for Small Computer Systems
Interface. SCSI is an industry standard computer interface for connecting SCSI peripherals (such as a hard disk drive, CD-ROM drive,
or scanner) to a common SCSI bus.
A SCSI bus is an electrical pathway that consists of a SCSI adapter
card (such as the SCSI Card 2940U2W) installed in a computer and
one or more SCSI peripherals. SCSI cables are used to connect the
peripherals to the SCSI adapter card.
For the SCSI bus to function properly, SCSI IDs must be assigned to
SCSI devices (SCSI peripherals and SCSI card), and the SCSI bus
must be properly terminated.
SCSI IDs
Each peripheral attached to the SCSI Card 2940U2W, as well as the
SCSI Card 2940U2W itself, must be assigned a unique SCSI ID number from 0 to 15. A SCSI ID uniquely identifies each SCSI device on
the SCSI bus and determines priority when two or more devices are
trying to use the SCSI bus at the same time.
Refer to the peripheral’s documentation to set the SCSI ID. Here are
some general guidelines for SCSI IDs:
■
For internal SCSI peripherals, the SCSI ID usually is set by configuring a jumper on the peripheral.
■
For external SCSI peripherals, the SCSI ID usually is set with a
switch on the back of the peripheral.
1
SCSI Card 2940U2W User’s Reference
■
SCSI ID numbers don’t have to be sequential, as long as the
SCSI Card 2940U2W and each peripheral has a different number. For example, you can have an internal SCSI peripheral
with ID 0, and an external SCSI peripheral with ID 6. Gaps in
the sequence of numbers don’t matter.
■
SCSI ID 7 has the highest priority on the SCSI bus. The priority
of the remaining IDs, in descending order, is 6 to 0, 15 to 8.
■
The SCSI Card 2940U2W is preset to SCSI ID 7 and should not
be changed. This gives it the highest priority on the SCSI bus.
■
Most internal SCSI hard disk drives come from the factory preset to SCSI ID 0.
■
If you have 8-bit SCSI peripherals, they must use SCSI IDs 0, 1,
2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. SCSI ID 0 is recommended for the first SCSI hard
disk drive.
■
If you are booting your computer from a SCSI hard disk drive
connected to the SCSI Card 2940U2W, the Boot Target ID setting in the SCSISelect utility must correspond to the SCSI ID of
the peripheral from which you are booting. By default, the
Boot Target ID is set to 0. See Boot Device Options on page 18 to
change the Boot Target ID.
■
■
In Windows® 95, you can use the Device Manager to view the
SCSI ID (and other details) assigned to each SCSI device
installed.
If you installed Adaptec ® EZ-SCSI® software, you can use the
SCSI Explorer utility to view the SCSI ID (and other details)
assigned to each SCSI device installed.
SCAM Protocol
The SCSI Card 2940U2W supports the SCSI Configured AutoMatically (SCAM) protocol, which assigns SCSI IDs dynamically and
resolves SCSI ID conflicts automatically when you start the computer. If your computer includes SCSI disk drives or other peripherals that support SCAM, you do not need to manually assign SCSI
IDs to these peripherals. To enable SCAM support, see Configuring
the SCSI Card 2940U2W with SCSISelect on page 15.

Understanding SCSI
Terminating the SCSI Bus
To ensure reliable communication on the SCSI bus, the ends of the
SCSI bus must be properly terminated. This is accomplished when
the peripheral at the end of each cable, or the end of the cable itself,
has a terminator installed (or enabled). The peripherals between the
ends of each cable must have its terminator removed (or disabled).
Since the method for terminating a SCSI peripheral can vary widely,
refer to the peripheral’s documentation for instructions on how to
enable or disable termination. Here are some general guidelines for
termination:
■
Termination on internal SCSI peripherals usually is controlled
by manually setting a jumper or a switch on the peripheral, or
by physically removing or installing one or more resistor modules on the peripheral.
■
Termination on external SCSI peripherals usually is controlled
by installing or removing a SCSI terminator. On some external
peripherals, termination is controlled by setting a switch on the
back of the drive.
■
By default, termination on the SCSI Card 2940U2W itself is
automatic (the preferred method). To manually set termination
on the SCSI Card 2940U2W, see Configuring the SCSI Card
2940U2W with SCSISelect on page 15.
■
Internal Ultra2 peripherals are set at the factory with termination disabled and cannot be changed. Proper termination for
internal Ultra2 peripherals is provided by the built-in terminator at the end of the Ultra2 internal SCSI cable.
■
Most non Ultra2 SCSI peripherals come from the factory with
termination enabled.

Troubleshooting
Most problems can be resolved by following the recommendations
in Troubleshooting Checklist below. If you still experience problems
after following the recommendations, continue with the remainder
of this section.
Troubleshooting Checklist
Most problems with using the SCSI Card 2940U2W result from
errors in preparing and connecting peripherals on the SCSI bus. If
you have problems, check these items first.
Note: If you have problems with a specific SCSI peripheral
when other connected SCSI peripherals are working correctly, please contact the manufacturer of the problem
peripheral for troubleshooting information.
4
■
Are all SCSI peripherals turned on?
■
Are all SCSI cables and power cables properly connected?
■
Is the SCSI Card 2940U2W firmly seated and secured in the
PCI expansion slot?
■
Is the PCI expansion slot PCI Rev. 2.1 or higher compliant and
does it support Bus Mastering?
■
Are all SCSI peripherals and the SCSI Card 2940U2W assigned
unique SCSI IDs? (See Setting Up SCSI Peripherals on page 3.)
■
Are all SCSI peripherals terminated properly? (See Setting Up
SCSI Peripherals on page 3.)
■
If your computer allows you to set up configuration options
when the computer first boots up (that is, through CMOS
setup), are the following options set up as specified?
■
If there is an Interrupt Type or Interrupt Line option in the
Setup program, select Int-A or Interrupt Type = A (you
may also be required to change a motherboard jumper setting).
■
If there is a Triggering Interrupt option, select Level.
Troubleshooting
■
If there is an option to enable or disable bus mastering for
the PCI slots, select Enabled.
■
If there is an option to enable or disable individual PCI
slots, be sure the slot in which you install the SCSI Card
2940U2W is Enabled.
■
If your computer has a combination of ISA (or EISA)
boards and PCI boards, you may need to mark the IRQs
used by ISA/EISA boards as Used so the computer BIOS
will not try to assign these IRQs to other PCI boards.
■
In some computers the BIOS reserves a set of available
IRQs for PCI boards, and you have to assign these IRQs
manually.
Note: Some configuration options apply to a specific PCI bus
slot, so if you change any option be sure you are applying
the change to the correct slot. Check your computer documentation to determine the correct PCI bus slot.
Troubleshooting in Windows 95

SCSI Card 2940U2W User’s Reference
Using the SCSI Card
2940U2W and SCSI
Peripherals
This section provides useful information on using the SCSI Card
2940U2W and your SCSI peripherals. For specific information, refer
to the documentation that came with your SCSI peripheral.
Using SCSI Peripherals
Hard Disk Drives
■
Every SCSI hard disk drive must be physically low-level formatted, partitioned, and logically formatted before it can be
used to store data. SCSI hard disks are physically low-level formatted at the factory and do not usually need to be formatted
again.
If you connect a new SCSI hard disk drive to your SCSI card,
you must partition and logically format the drive. For DOS
and Windows (3.x and 95) use the DOS Fdisk and Format commands (see your computer, DOS, and Windows documentation). For other operating systems, see your operating system
documentation.
10
■
If you are booting from a SCSI hard disk drive, make sure the
Hard Disk (or Drives) setting in your computer’s CMOS setup
program is set to None or No Drives Installed, as is required
for SCSI hard disk drives. See your computer documentation
for details.
■
If both SCSI and non-SCSI (for example, IDE) disk drives are
installed, then the non-SCSI disk drive is typically the boot
drive. If your computer supports BBS (BIOS Boot Specification), both SCSI and non-SCSI disk drives can coexist and you
can specify which drive to boot from. Refer to your computer
documentation for more information.
Using the SCSI Card 2940U2W and SCSI Peripherals
Ultra2 Hard Disk Drives
■
We recommend keeping your Ultra2 hard disk drives separate
from your non Ultra2 peripherals. Connecting a non Ultra2
hard disk drive to the Ultra2 connector on the SCSI Card
2940U2W causes the Ultra2 SCSI segment of the SCSI bus to
drop down to Ultra SCSI performance levels (40 MBytes/sec).
■
Do not connect your Ultra2 hard disk drives to connectors
other than the Ultra2 connectors on the SCSI Card 2940U2W.
Ultra2 Internal Connector
Ultra2 External Connector
Figure 1. Ultra2 Internal and External Connectors
■
Internal Ultra2 SCSI peripherals come from the factory with
termination disabled and cannot be changed. Proper termination is provided by the built-in terminator at the end of the
Ultra2 internal SCSI cable provided in the kit.
Scanners
■
You will need to install the scanner manufacturer’s proprietary
software drivers. See your scanner’s documentation for details.
11
SCSI Card 2940U2W User’s Reference
SCSI Peripheral Display at Bootup
At bootup, each peripheral attached to the SCSI Card 2940U2W is
identified by SCSI ID, name, the SCSI segment to which it is
attached (Ultra2 or Fast/Ultra), and the mode (LVD-Ultra2 or SEUltra) in which it is running. For example, a message similar to the
following appears on the screen at bootup:
SCSI ID:0 Seagate ST39173LC Ultra2 LVD
In this example, the peripheral is assigned SCSI ID 0; “Seagate
ST39173LC” refers to the name of the peripheral; “Ultra2” indicates
that the peripheral is attached to the Ultra2 SCSI segment; “LVD”
means that the peripheral is running in LVD-Ultra2 mode.
LVD (Low Voltage Differential) is the enabling technology for
Ultra2. If the peripheral is running in LVD-Ultra2 mode, this indicates that the peripheral’s maximum transfer rate is set at the Ultra2
SCSI performance level (80 MBytes/sec). SE (Single-Ended) is the
enabling technology for Fast SCSI and Ultra SCSI. If the peripheral is
running in SE-Ultra mode, this indicates that the peripheral’s maximum transfer rate is set at the Ultra SCSI performance level (40
MBytes/sec).
Note: If any peripheral is attached to the Ultra2 SCSI segment and is running at SE mode, one or more Wide Ultra/
Ultra peripherals is attached to the Ultra2 SCSI segment and
is causing the Ultra2 SCSI segment to run at speeds up to
40 MBytes/sec instead of 80 MBytes/sec.
Installing Multiple SCSI Cards
12
■
You can install multiple SCSI cards in your computer; you are
limited only by the available system resources (for example,
IRQ settings, I/O port addresses, BIOS addresses, and so forth)
not used by other cards installed in your computer.
■
Each SCSI card you install forms a separate SCSI bus with a
different set of SCSI peripherals. SCSI IDs can be reused as
long as the ID is assigned to a peripheral on a different SCSI
card (for example, each SCSI card can have a peripheral with
SCSI ID 2).
Using the SCSI Card 2940U2W and SCSI Peripherals
■
If you have two or more SCSI cards, enable the BIOS on the boot
SCSI card only; disable the BIOS on the remaining SCSI cards.
Connecting the LED Connector
(Optional feature) Most computers have an LED disk activity light on
the front panel. If you choose to disconnect the cable from the LED
connector on the motherboard and connect it to the LED connector
on the SCSI card, the LED on the front panel of the computer will
light whenever there is activity on the SCSI bus (see Figure 2).
Note: If you are using non-SCSI disk drives (for example,
IDE), you may not want to connect your computer’s LED to
the SCSI card, since the LED will no longer indicate nonSCSI disk activity.

SCSI Card 2940U2W User’s Reference
Using SCSI and IDE (or EIDE) Peripherals
■
All Adaptec SCSI cards can coexist with another controller
(IDE, EIDE, RLL, etc.) installed in the computer.
■
If you have both an IDE hard disk drive and a SCSI hard disk
drive, the IDE drive is typically the boot drive. In this case, disable the BIOS on the SCSI card (see Advanced Configuration
Options on page 20). If your computer supports BBS (BIOS Boot
Specification), both SCSI and non-SCSI disk drives can coexist
and you can specify which drive to boot from. Refer to your
computer documentation for more information.
■
You cannot connect an IDE peripheral to a SCSI card, or a SCSI
peripheral to an IDE card (controller).
■
Disable the BIOS on the SCSI card if no SCSI hard disk drives
are installed (see Advanced Configuration Options on page 20).
Replacing a Non-Adaptec SCSI Card with an
Adaptec SCSI Card
■
SCSI is standard, but how data is translated on to a hard disk
drive is not. Each SCSI card manufacturer uses its own translation schemes for writing data to a disk. To use a hard disk
drive previously connected to a non-Adaptec SCSI card, lowlevel format the drive after connecting to the Adaptec SCSI
card. (See Using SCSI Disk Utilities on page 22.)
Caution: A low-level format destroys all data on the drive.
Be sure to back up your data before performing a low-level
format.

Note: To configure settings for a SCSI peripheral, you must
know its SCSI ID (see Using SCSI Disk Utilities on page 22).
■
Initiate Sync Negotiation—When set to Yes, initiates synchronous data transfer negotiation (Sync Negotiation) between the
peripheral and SCSI card. Leave this setting set to Yes unless
any attached SCSI peripheral connected to the SCSI card does
not support synchronous negotiation.
■
Maximum Sync Transfer Rate—Determines the maximum
synchronous data transfer rate the SCSI card supports. Use the
maximum value of 80.0. If your peripheral is not Ultra SCSI,
select a transfer rate of 10.0.
■
Enable Disconnection—When set to Yes, allows the SCSI
peripheral to disconnect from the SCSI bus. Leave the setting
at Yes if two or more SCSI peripherals are connected to the
SCSI card. If only one SCSI peripheral is connected, changing
the setting to No results in slightly better performance.
■
Initiate Wide Negotiation—When set to Yes, the SCSI card
attempts 16-bit data transfer (wide negotiation). When set to
No, the SCSI card uses 8-bit data transfer unless the SCSI
peripheral requests wide negotiation.
Note: Set Initiate Wide Negotiation to No if you are using an

SCSI card generates a SCSI bus reset during its power-on initialization and after a hard reset.
■
Extended BIOS Translation for DOS Drives > 1 GByte—
When set to Enable, provides an extended translation scheme
for SCSI hard disks with capacities greater than 1 GByte. This
setting is necessary only for MS-DOS 5.0 or above; it is not
required for other operating systems, such as NetWare or
UNIX.The extended translation scheme supports disk drives
as large as 8 GBytes.
To partition a disk larger than 1 GByte controlled by the SCSI
card BIOS, use the MS-DOS Fdisk command.
Caution: Back up your disk drives before changing the
translation scheme.

Host Adapter BIOS (Configuration Utility Reserves BIOS
Space)—Enables or disables the SCSI card BIOS.
■
Set to Enable if you boot from a SCSI disk drive connected
to the SCSI card.
■
Set to Disable if the peripherals on the SCSI bus (for example, CD-ROM drives) are controlled by software drivers
and do not need the BIOS.
Support Removable Disks Under BIOS as Fixed Disks—
Determines which removable-media drives are supported by
the SCSI card BIOS. Choices are as follows:
Configuring the SCSI Card 2940U2W with SCSISelect
■
Boot Only—Only the removable-media drive designated
as the boot device is treated as a hard disk drive.
■
All Disks—All removable-media drives supported by the
BIOS are treated as hard disk drives.
■
Disabled— No removable-media drives are treated as hard
disk drives. Software drivers are required because the
drives are not controlled by the BIOS.
Caution: Do not remove a removable-media cartridge from a
SCSI drive controlled by the SCSI card BIOS while the drive
is on. You may lose data. To allow removability of the media
while the drive is on, install the removable-media software
driver and set Support Removable Disks Under BIOS as
Fixed Disks to Disabled.
■
Display <Ctrl> <A> Messages during BIOS Initialization—
When set to Enable, the SCSI card BIOS displays the Press
<Ctrl> <A> for SCSISelect (TM) Utility! message on your screen
during system bootup. If this setting is disabled, you can still
invoke the SCSISelect Utility by pressing <Ctrl> <A> after the
SCSI card BIOS banner appears.
■
BIOS Support for Bootable CD-ROMs—When set to Enable,
the SCSI card BIOS allows booting from a CD-ROM drive.
■
BIOS Support for Int 13 Extensions—When set to Enable, the
SCSI card BIOS supports Int 13h extensions as required by
Plug-and-Play. The setting can be either enabled or disabled if
your system is not Plug-and-Play.

SCSI Card 2940U2W User’s Reference
Using SCSI Disk Utilities
To access the SCSI disk utilities, follow these steps:
1
Select the SCSI Disk Utilities option from the menu that
appears after starting SCSISelect. SCSISelect scans the SCSI bus
(to determine the devices installed) and displays a list of all
SCSI IDs and the devices assigned to each ID. (See SCSI Peripheral Display at Bootup on page 12 for a definition of the messages displayed.)
2
Use the ↑ and ↓ keys to move the cursor to a specific ID and
device, then press Enter.
3
A small menu appears, displaying the options Format Disk
and Verify Disk Media.
■
Format Disk—Allows you to perform a low-level format
on a hard disk drive. Most SCSI disk devices are preformatted
at the factory and do not need to be formatted again. Each hard
disk drive must be low-level formatted before you can use
your operating system’s partitioning and file preparation
utilities, such as MS-DOS Fdisk and Format.
Caution: A low-level format destroys all data on the
drive. Be sure to back up your data before performing
this operation. You cannot abort a low-level format
once it is started.
■
22
Verify Disk Media—Allows you to scan the media of a
hard disk drive for defects. If the utility finds bad blocks on
the media, it prompts you to reassign them; if you select
yes, those blocks are no longer used. You can press Esc at
any time to abort the utility.
