Overview
This user’s guide provides information on how to install and configure the Adaptec AMM-1570 and AMM-1572 SCSI Audio Host
Adapters. The AMM-1572 is identical to the AMM-1570 except that
it has an onboard floppy disk controller that supports up to two
floppy disk drives. In this user ’s guide, the AMM-1570 and
AMM-1572 are referred to jointly as the AMM-1570/1572.
What is the AMM-1570/1572?
The AMM-1570/1572 provides full SCSI host adapter functionality
and superior audio performance for your SCSI and multimedia
devices. This is accomplished through the integration of two discrete
functional modules onto a single board: A SCSI module and an
audio module.
The AMM-1570/1572 SCSI module provides a powerful multitasking interface between the ISA bus and the SCSI bus featuring 16-bit
transfer capability. Up to seven individually configured SCSI
devices can be connected to and supported simultaneously by the
AMM-1570/1572.
The AMM-1570/1572 audio module is based on a Digital Signal
Processor (DSP) that can off load many computer intensive audio
and video processing tasks from the host adapter. Through the input
and output jacks, a variety of audio equipment can be connected to
the AMM-1570/1572. The audio module provides
■
Digital audio recording and playback with compression
■
Audio synthesis
■
Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) recording and
playback
■
Joystick game port interface

Types of Cables Required
Before you actually install the host adapter, be sure you have the correct cables for your particular installation. The type of cables
required depends on the type of devices you plan to connect to the
SCSI bus: either external or internal. The type of connectors attached
to the cables also depends on the configuration of your installation.
Type of Connector
on Host Adapter
Type of SCSI Cable
Type of Connector on SCSI Cable
Internal
50-pin SCSI ribbon cable
Unshrouded 50-pin header, compatible with unshielded Alternative
2 connector.
External
50-pin shielded cable
Shielded 50-pin Alternative 2
connector.
Maximum Cable Lengths
When the SCSI bus contains a Fast SCSI host adapter, such as the
AMM-1570/1572, and one or more Fast SCSI devices, the total
length of all cables (internal and external) connected to the bus
should not exceed 3 meters to ensure reliable operation. If no Fast
SCSI devices are connected, the total length of all cables should not
exceed 6 meters.
External SCSI Connector Mounting Bracket
If you are connecting external SCSI devices to the AMM-1570/1572,
the external SCSI connector mounting bracket must be installed.
This bracket allows you to connect external SCSI devices to the
AMM-1570/1572. The mounting bracket is available from Adaptec
and is normally included with all AMM-1570/1572 kits. Refer to
Installing the External SCSI Connector Mounting Bracket on page 3-8
for detailed instructions on installing the bracket.

Preparing Your Devices for Installation
Before physically installing the AMM-1570/1572 in your system, the
AMM-1570/1572 must first be configured for operation. Once it is
installed in your system, it is difficult to change its configuration.
This chapter provides instructions on how to configure the
AMM-1570/1572. It discusses the concepts of termination and SCSI
IDs and explains the importance of properly terminating and assigning SCSI IDs to each SCSI device (including the host adapter) connected to the SCSI bus. In addition, this chapter describes in detail
how to configure each of the jumper blocks on the AMM-1570/1572.
Termination on the SCSI Bus
To prevent line noise from bouncing back through the SCSI bus, the
first and last physical SCSI devices on the SCSI bus must have a set
of resistors called terminators either installed or enabled. If the terminators on the first and last SCSI device are not installed or enabled,
the signal may echo when it reaches the end of the cable; that echo
often seems like a real signal to the SCSI device.
Identify which two SCSI devices will form the physical endpoints of
your SCSI bus. These devices at the ends of the SCSI bus must be terminated. All other SCSI devices installed between the ends of the
SCSI bus must have their terminators either removed or disabled.
Note: External SCSI devices are connected to an external
SCSI connector mounting bracket that is attached to the
AMM-1570/1572. When attached, the mounting
bracket becomes a component of the board; it is not a
device on the SCSI bus. See Installing the External SCSI
Connector Mounting Bracket on page 3-8.

Internal and External Devices
When both internal and external SCSI devices are connected to the
host adapter, the last external device and the last internal device
cabled to the host adapter is terminated. Since the host adapter is situated in the middle of the SCSI bus, and does not form a physical
endpoint, host adapter termination is disabled.

Terminating SCSI Devices
Most SCSI devices use a jumper or a switch located close to their
SCSI connector(s) to control termination. On some SCSI devices, you
must physically remove or install terminator resistor module(s).
Refer to the manufacturer’s documentation to determine how to
enable or disable termination on your particular SCSI device(s).
Note: Since the AMM-1570/1572 always supplies termination power on the SCSI bus, termination power supplied by other SCSI devices should be disabled.
Terminating the AMM-1570/1572
Host adapter termination is determined by the types (internal
and/or external) of SCSI devices connected to the AMM-1570/1572.
The table below describes the possible configurations for host
adapter termination.

The factory installed bus terminators on the AMM-1570/1572 are
located below the SCSI internal connector and are enabled
(Installed) by default. To disable termination on the host adapter,
remove all three terminators.

SCSI IDs on the SCSI Bus
Each SCSI device (including the host adapter) located on the SCSI
bus must be set to a unique SCSI ID. The SCSI ID serves two purposes: it uniquely defines each SCSI device's address on the bus, and
it determines the device's priority on the bus during the Arbitration
phase. The Arbitration phase determines which device owns the bus
when two or more devices simultaneously request to use it.
When selecting the SCSI ID, consider the following:
■
The default value for your host adapter is SCSI ID 7. Normally,
the host adapter should always be set to SCSI ID 7, which is the
ID that has the highest priority on the SCSI bus.
■
Standard 8-bit SCSI devices can be assigned IDs that range
from 0 to 7; SCSI ID 7 has the highest priority, and SCSI ID 0
has the lowest.
■
A device's SCSI ID should be changed only if it conflicts with
the SCSI ID of another device or another host adapter (assuming they are on the same SCSI bus).

■
SCSI ID 0 is best reserved for the SCSI hard disk drive that will
be used as your computer's boot device.
■
SCSI ID 1 is best reserved for a second hard disk drive.
■
SCSI IDs play no role in determining the physical order of SCSI
devices cabled to the host adapter.
■
If you are installing more than one SCSI host adapter, each
adapter implements a different SCSI bus, so SCSI IDs can be
reused.
Setting the SCSI ID on the AMM-1570/1572
Changing the SCSI ID setting on the AMM-1570/1572 is done by
configuring jumper block J6 on the board. SCSI ID on page 2-16 lists
the available settings for SCSI ID.
Setting the SCSI ID on Other SCSI Devices
The SCSI ID on most SCSI devices is typically set with jumpers or
with switches on the SCSI device. Refer to the SCSI device documentation for information on changing the SCSI ID for your particular
SCSI device.
Default Settings
In most cases, you will never have to change the default settings of
the AMM-1570/1572; however, if you need to change any of the settings, do it before you install the AMM-1570/1572 in your system.
The following table lists the AMM-1570/1572 default settings and
the jumper blocks used to configure the settings. For settings and
options of each jumper block, see Configuring the AMM-1570/1572 on
page 2-10.

Configuring the AMM-1570/1572
Configuring the AMM-1570/1572 involves installing or removing
small plastic jumper connectors on the pins of jumper blocks located
on the AMM-1570/1572.
Installing and Removing Jumper Connectors
Installing a jumper (On) means to install a small plastic jumper connector so that it covers both pins of the jumper pin pair. Removing
the jumper connector or having it cover only one pin is the same as
having no jumper installed (Off).

= Do not reroute Int 19h
BT
* = Default
To allow for booting capability from a SCSI drive, the host adapter
BIOS allows you to reroute Int 19h during system bootup. If Int 19h
is not rerouted, Int 13h performs system bootup and allows bootup
from a non-SCSI device (e.g., IDE drive).
Note: In the default setting the host adapter BIOS performs the booting function.

Fast SCSI Operation
Pin pair FS determines whether the host adapter initiates support
for Fast SCSI Operation. The available settings are
= Fast SCSI Operation Disabled *
FS
= Fast SCSI Operation Enabled
FS
* = Default
Fast SCSI devices, including the AMM-1570/1572, are capable of
transferring data to and from the SCSI bus at speeds ranging from 5
to 10 MBytes/sec.
Fast SCSI Operation and Synchronous Negotiation are used in conjunction to determine request for data transfer rates:
■
If both Fast SCSI Operation and Synchronous Negotiation is
enabled, the host adapter initiates a request for 10 MByte/sec
data transfer.
■
If Fast SCSI Operation is enabled and Synchronous Negotiation is disabled, the Fast SCSI drive initiates a request for
10 MByte/sec data transfer.
■
If Fast SCSI Operation is disabled and Synchronous Negotiation is enabled, the host adapter initiates a request for
5 MByte/sec data transfer.
■
If both Fast SCSI Operation and Synchronous Negotiation
are disabled, the Fast SCSI device initiates a request for
5 MByte/sec data transfer.

Synchronous Negotiation
Pin pair SN allows you to enable or disable whether the host adapter
initiates Synchronous Negotiation with a SCSI device. The available
settings are
= Synchronous Negotiation Enabled
SN
= Synchronous Negotiation Disabled *
SN
* = Default
Before data is transferred across the bus, the sending (initiating) and
receiving (target) devices negotiate and agree on how long each
piece of data is, and how many pieces are sent at a time—that is,
they agree on how fast to talk.
SCSI devices that support Synchronous Negotiation data transfer
can maintain a much higher conversation speed than devices that do
not support it.
When enabled, the host adapter initiates Synchronous Negotiation
with the SCSI device. When disabled, the host adapter does not initiate Synchronous Negotiation with the SCSI device. The host
adapter, however, always responds to Synchronous Negotiation initiated from the SCSI device.
If neither the host adapter nor the SCSI peripheral negotiate for
synchronous data transfers, all data transfers will be asynchronous.
Note: Some older SCSI-1 devices may have trouble handling Synchronous Negotiation, which may result in
erratic behavior or a hang condition. For these devices,
leave Synchronous Negotiation disabled.

SCSI Disconnection
Pin pair DN allows you to enable or disable SCSI Disconnection. The
default setting is enabled. The available settings are
= SCSI Disconnection Enabled *
DN
= SCSI Disconnection Disabled
DN
* = Default
SCSI Disconnection (sometimes referred to as Disconnect/Reconnect) determines whether the host adapter allows a SCSI device to
disconnect from the SCSI bus while the device completes a lengthy
operation. If disconnection is allowed, the host adapter can perform
other operations on the SCSI bus while the devices are temporarily
disconnected.
Note: A SCSI device may choose not to disconnect, even
if allowed to by the host adapter (this is usually configurable on the SCSI device).
In general, disconnect should be allowed for the most efficient SCSI
bus utilization and highest overall system performance. If only one
SCSI device is attached to the SCSI host adapter, disconnects are not
required for efficient SCSI bus utilization since only one SCSI device
is using the SCSI bus. A slight performance increase may be realized
if disconnect is not allowed in this case, due to the decreased SCSI
overhead. In multidevice environments, disconnect should normally
be allowed to take advantage of the Disconnect/Reconnect feature.
Floptical Drive Support
Pin pair FL allows you to enable or disable Floptical Drive Support.
Enable this option if you are connecting a Floptical drive to the SCSI
bus. The available settings are
= Floptical Support Enabled
FL
= Floptical Support Disabled *
FL

To install the AMM-1570/1572 in your computer:
1
Remove the chassis cover to expose the expansion slots and
external access covers.
2
Install and secure the host adapter in an available expansion
slot.
3
To connect internal SCSI devices, use a 50-pin SCSI ribbon cable
to connect the first SCSI device to the internal connector on the
host adapter. Make sure to align Pin 1 of the cable with Pin 1 of
the connectors on the host adapter and internal SCSI device.
4
To connect additional internal SCSI devices, obtain a 50-pin
SCSI ribbon cable with enough connectors to accommodate all
of your internal SCSI devices.
5
If you are connecting external SCSI devices, install and secure
the external SCSI connector mounting bracket (available from
Adaptec) into an available slot cover opening next to the
board.
6
Connect the ribbon cable of the external SCSI connector mounting bracket to the external SCSI connector on the host adapter.
7
To connect the first external SCSI device, use a 50-pin shielded
cable to connect the device to the external SCSI connector
mounting bracket.
8
To connect subsequent external SCSI devices, obtain additional
50-pin shielded cables to chain the devices together.
9
If you are using the floppy controller on the AMM-1572, use a
34-pin floppy ribbon cable and connect one end to the floppy
connector on the host adapter; connect the other end to the
connector on the first floppy drive (drive A).
10
To connect a second floppy drive, plug the middle connector of
the floppy ribbon cable to the connector on the second floppy
drive (drive B).
11
To connect audio devices, plug your devices into the appropriate jacks on the mounting bracket of the AMM-1570/1572. Any
audio equipment, with the exception of the joystick and MIDI
connector, connected to the AMM-1570/1572 must be
equipped with a 1/8-inch plug (miniphone plug).

To completely install all the software necessary to operate the
AMM-1570/1572, run the Adaptec EZ-SCSI program; a series
of screens guide you through SCSI and audio configuration.
See Installing Adaptec Software on page 3-19, for information on
software available for the AMM-1570/1572.
Detailed Installation
This section is intended primarily for users who are new to SCSI
peripherals, or have limited experience in installing an option board
in their computer. Experienced users may want to refer to Quick
Installation on page 3-3.
The comprehensive instructions in this section guide you through
installing the host adapter, cabling peripherals, and connecting
audio equipment.
Note: Before physically installing the board, verify that
SCSI termination, SCSI ID setting, and jumper block configuration are properly configured on the AMM-1570/
1572. Once the AMM-1570/1572 is installed in your
computer it is very difficult to change these settings.
Chapter 2, Configuring the AMM-1570/1572, describes

Connecting External SCSI Devices
To install external SCSI devices, make sure the external SCSI connector mounting bracket is installed as explained on page 3-8.
External devices are usually daisy-chained to the host adapter. This
means that a simple two-ended cable runs from the host adapter to
the connector on the first external device. A second connector on the
back of the external device allows another cable to connect it with
the second device in the chain. Up to seven external SCSI devices
can be connected to the external connector.
External SCSI devices use a 50-pin shielded cable with an external
connector. External cable connectors are keyed and can only be
plugged-in one way; Pin 1 orientation is automatic.
To connect external SCSI devices:
1
Connect one end of the external SCSI cable to the external SCSI
connector mounting bracket.

Connecting the SCSI Bus Activity LED
Most computers have a disk drive activity light, usually an LED
(Light Emitting Diode) on the front panel. If you connect your system's LED cable to the host adapter, the LED will light to indicate
SCSI bus activity.
Note: If you connect your computer's LED to the host
adapter, the LED no longer indicates non-SCSI disk
activity. So you may not want to use this feature if you
are running non-SCSI disk drives.
To connect the SCSI bus LED connector:
1
Refer to your system's documentation to locate and unplug the
LED cable from the connector on the system board.
2
Connect the LED cable to the SCSI activity LED connector (J1)
on the host adapter.

Line-in (IN) Jack
The IN jack allows you to connect audio equipment for audio input
to the AMM-1570/1572. Typical equipment includes stereo receivers, amplifiers, tape decks, and CD players. Use an RCA-to-stereo
miniphone cable to plug your equipment to the IN jack.
Note: Audio input from a CD-ROM drive to the
AMM-1570/1572 is accomplished by connecting a separate audio cable (provided by the CD-ROM drive manufacturer) from the Line-level Output (Audio Out)
connector on the drive to the CD Audio Input connector
(J4) on the AMM-1570/1572.
Since the Line-level Output is a nonstandard connector
and can vary depending on the CD-ROM manufacturer,
the type of audio cable used can also vary. Refer to the
CD-ROM drive documentation for information on connecting your drive to the CD-Audio Input on sound
cards such as the AMM-1570/1572. To have a customized cable made, pinouts for connector J4 on the
AMM-1570/1572 are described in Appendix A, Specifications.
Microphone (MIC) Jack
The MIC jack allows you to connect any standard microphone with a
miniphone plug.
Joystick/MIDI Port
The Joystick/MIDI port on the AMM-1570/1572 is identical to that
on a standard PC game control adapter or game port. Any standard
PC joystick (i.e., an analog joystick with a 15-pin D-subconnector)
can be connected to the Joystick/MIDI port.
The Joystick/MIDI port also provides access to the Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI). MIDI is a serial bus, digital interface
that allows you to connect electronic musical devices, such as keyboards and synthesizers to your computer.
In order to use the AMM-1570/1572 for MIDI recording, you must
first obtain a MIDI adapter and MIDI software. The MIDI adapter
plugs into the Joystick/MIDI port. Typically the MIDI adapter also
includes a separate joystick port that allows you to have both MIDI
and joystick capabilities at the same time. For more information on

SCSI Troubleshooting Checklist
The AMM-1570/1572 host adapters have been tested for compatibility with popular SCSI devices. Most problems that might occur during installation can be traced to errors in preparing devices on the
SCSI bus.
The following suggestions should help you to solve any problems
that you may encounter. If you need additional help in getting the
host adapter running properly, information on contacting Adaptec
Technical Support is included on page ii.
If a problem occurs during installation, check these items first:
■
Be sure all cables are properly connected. Check both power
and SCSI interface cables. See Detailed Installation on page 3-5.
Connect internal peripherals to your computer's power supply; plug external peripheral power cables into a grounded
line power outlet. Follow the instructions in the hardware
documentation.
■
Be sure the host adapter is firmly seated and secured in the
expansion slot it is installed in.
■
Check SCSI bus termination. The devices at the ends of the bus
must be terminated. See Termination on the SCSI Bus on page
2-3.
■
Be sure the SCSI devices and host adapter are each set to a
unique SCSI ID (0-7). See SCSI IDs on the SCSI Bus on page 2-7.
■
If you have installed more than one SCSI host adapter make
sure that only one host adapter BIOS is enabled at a time.
If your problem is still not resolved, continue with the next section.

Operating Problems
The system will not boot from the standard floppy drive or hard drive
after initial hardware installation.
■
The LED on the host adapter should light up briefly when you
power up the system. If the host adapter detects an internal
failure, a message is displayed on the screen. Return the board
to the place where you bought it for repair or replacement.
■
If both the host adapter and SCSI drive LEDs always remain
on, the pin 1 orientation of the SCSI cable is probably reversed
between the host adapter and the drive. Make sure that pin 1
orientation is maintained throughout the bus as explained in
Connecting Internal SCSI Devices on page 3-9.
■
If the host adapter BIOS message is not displayed on the
screen, the system does not recognize the BIOS.
– Check for BIOS and I/O port address conflicts between the
host adapter and other option boards.
– Try a different BIOS address. Refer to Jumper Block J9 on
page 2-17.
– Make sure the host adapter BIOS is enabled. The jumper on
pin pair BE of jumper block J9 must be installed (factory
default).
■
If you see the message Host Adapter Not Found At Port 340h,
check the I/O port address jumper setting. Refer to Jumper
Block J9 on page 2-17.
■
Make sure that the floppy disk drive is cabled correctly.
■
Make sure only one floppy controller is enabled in the system.
The system does not boot from the SCSI hard disk drive, and the
Adaptec logo does not appear on the screen during system bootup.
This problem indicates that the host adapter BIOS is not running.
■
Make sure the BIOS is enabled and that a jumper connector is
installed on pin pair BE of jumper block J9.
■
Make sure that the host adapter is firmly seated in the expansion bus slot.
■
Make sure that there is no SCSI ID addressing conflict.

Troubleshooting
■
If your system has only SCSI disk drives, make sure your computer’s CMOS setup is set to No Drives Installed, as is required
for SCSI host adapters.
■
If necessary, back up all data on the desired boot hard disk and
perform a high-level or low-level format.
■
If your system is running under DOS, be sure that the intended
boot disk has an active DOS partition and a DOS format.
■
If your system is attempting to boot from the SCSI hard drive,
make sure the SCSI ID of the hard drive you want to boot from
is set to 0.
■
Make sure that SCSI parity is consistently enabled or disabled
on all devices on the SCSI bus.
■
Make sure that SCSI termination is properly set on the host
adapter and SCSI devices. (See Termination on the SCSI Bus on
page 2-3.)
The aspi2dos.sys ASPI manager is installed; however, the system will
not boot from the SCSI hard disk drive, and the aspi2dos logo does not
appear on the screen.
■
Make sure aspi2dos.sys is located in the root directory of the
boot drive.
■
Make sure the config.sys file contains the following entry:
device=c:\...\aspi2dos.sys /d
The system is having difficulties using a SCSI drive as drive D and a
standard hard disk as drive C.
■
Make sure hard disk 1 (D) is set to Not Installed or No Drive
Installed with your CMOS setup program.
■
Make sure the SCSI drive used as drive D is set to SCSI ID 0.
Check your drive manual for information on setting the SCSI
ID for that device.
■
Make sure SCSI parity is consistently enabled or disabled on
all devices on the SCSI bus.
■
Make sure SCSI termination is properly set on the host adapter
and SCSI devices.
■
If your system is running under DOS, make sure the disk has a
DOS partition.

The system is having difficulties using a SCSI drive as drive D and
another SCSI drive as drive C.
■
Make sure that both standard hard disks are set to Not Installed
or No Drive Installed with your CMOS setup program.
■
Make sure the SCSI drive used as drive D is set to SCSI ID 1.
Check your drive manual for information on setting the SCSI
ID for that device.
■
Make sure SCSI parity is consistently enabled or disabled on
all devices on the SCSI bus.
■
Make sure SCSI termination is properly set on the host adapter
and SCSI devices.
■
If your system is running under DOS, make sure that the disk
has a DOS partition.
The system works erratically; it hangs, or the host adapter cannot
locate the drives.
■
Make sure SCSI parity is consistently enabled or disabled on
all devices on the SCSI bus.
■
Make sure SCSI termination is set correctly on the host adapter
and the peripherals.
■
Check cable length and integrity. Total cable length should be
no longer than 6 meters for the entire SCSI bus. If Fast SCSI
Operation is enabled, total cable length should be no longer
than 3 meters for the entire SCSI bus.
Playing audio CDs from your CD-ROM drive works fine in DOS, but
when trying to play audio CDs while in Windows, you get a message
similar to NO CD ROM FOUND....
■
The [MCI] CD Audio driver is needed in order to play audio
CDs while in Windows. Use the Drivers option in Control
Panel to install the [MCI] CD Audio driver.

Troubleshooting
While playing audio CDs from your CD-ROM drive, you can not hear
any sound while plugged into the SPKR jack on the AMM-1570/1572,
but if you plug into the audio/headphone jack on the CD-ROM drive it
works fine.
■
A separate audio cable provided by the CD-ROM manufacturer
must be connected from the Line-level Output (Audio Out)
connector on the CD-ROM drive to the CD Audio Input connector (J4) on the AMM-1570/1572. Refer to Line-in (IN) Jack on
page 3-18.

be displayed.
aspi2dos.sys Error Messages
Failed to initialize HA
Check the host adapter and reinstall if necessary. Check jumpers and
cables.
aspi2dos.sys Installation Failed
Check the contents of your config.sys file. Remove all unnecessary
device drivers (including all memory managers) until aspi2dos.sys
installs successfully; then reload the other drivers one at a time to
find the driver that is causing the problem. Try installing
aspi2dos.sys on the first line of your config.sys. file.
Illegal or no Hex Digit Found on command line option
Illegal Digit Found on command line / x option
Check the syntax of the statements in your config.sys file. There may
be an invalid digit on the command line.
aspidisk.sys Error Messages
aspidisk.sys is NOT installed
Check the contents of your config.sys file. Remove all unnecessary
device drivers until aspidisk.sys installs successfully; then reload the
drivers one at a time to find the driver that is causing the problem.
Be sure that the disk device you want to control with aspidisk.sys is
not under the control of the host adapter BIOS. (If enabled, the host
adapter BIOS controls the SCSI drives installed at SCSI IDs 0 and 1,
and aspidisk.sys is not required.)

Unable to open ASPI manager!
No ASPI manager is loaded. Be sure that aspi2dos.sys is listed before
aspidisk.sys in the config.sys file. Be sure that the ASPI drivers are in
the root directory of the boot drive. You can also put the drivers in a
subdirectory, as long as you specify a correct path in the config.sys
file. For example, if you put the drivers in a subdirectory called
c:\drivers, then you need the following line in your config.sys file:
device=c:\drivers\aspi2dos.sys
Invalid DOS version. DOS must be version 3.21 and above.
aspidisk.sys requires MS®-DOS or PC-DOS 3.21 or higher. It does
not load if it detects an earlier version of DOS.
Other Error Messages
Host adapter at port address xxx failed diagnostics.
xxx = the port address. This message indicates that there is no host
adapter at that port address, that there is an address conflict, or that
the host adapter is defective. Reinstall the host adapter. Check cables
and jumpers. Check for I/O address conflicts. Confirm that the contents of the motherboard CMOS are set correctly with the Setup
program.
Failed scanning for SCSI devices.
The driver failed when scanning the SCSI bus for SCSI devices. Be
sure that the SCSI drive’s jumpers for SCSI ID and LUN are set correctly. Be sure that all SCSI devices are powered up. Check SCSI bus
termination, SCSI parity, and cabling.

Adaptec EZ-SCSI
If you are running MS-DOS or MS-DOS with Windows, Adaptec
EZ-SCSI I/O Operating Environment Software makes driver
installation easier than ever before. Adaptec EZ-SCSI is a menudriven software package that configures your operating
environment automatically for SCSI operation.
Adaptec EZ-SCSI has a number of utility programs including afdisk
and scsifmt, which are used to partition and format SCSI disk
devices. Adaptec EZ-SCSI also includes an ASPI device driver called
aspicd that supports most models of CD-ROM drives, including
single-session and multi-session Photo CD; and an aspidisk device
driver, which supports up to 24 fixed disk devices.
To install support for SCSI devices other than fixed disk devices and
CD-ROM drives, check the hardware documentation for those
devices. If the device requires ASPI support, you first need to run
Adaptec EZ-SCSI to install an ASPI manager, and then install any
other software provided with the device. If the device is designed to
interface directly with the host adapter, no ASPI manager is
required. Refer to the Adaptec EZ-SCSI User's Guide for instructions
on installing and running Adaptec EZ-SCSI.

Performance Tips
The AMM-1570/1572 is designed to maximize the performance of
your SCSI devices and computer. The following tips will help you
take full advantage of the host adapter's advanced design features.
Enabling Synchronous Negotiation
Synchronous Negotiation is disabled by default on the AMM-1570/
1572. You should normally enable this option on the host adapter
because most SCSI devices support it and it allows data to be transferred faster on the bus. Because a few SCSI devices (e.g., certain
CD-ROM drives) do not support Synchronous Negotiation and may
malfunction if they receive a request for it, you may want to keep
Synchronous Negotiation disabled.
Note: Even when Synchronous Negotiation is disabled
on the host adapter, the host adapter switches to Synchronous Mode if it receives a request from the SCSI
device.
Disabling the Host Adapter BIOS
Disabling the host adapter BIOS saves you 16 KBytes of memory
address space and can also shorten bootup time.
You should disable the host adapter BIOS if the peripherals on the
SCSI bus (for example, CD-ROM drives) are all controlled by software device drivers and do not require BIOS control. When the host
adapter BIOS is disabled, you can no longer boot from the SCSI hard
disk.
Enabling SCSI Parity Checking
SCSI Parity Checking is a procedure used by the host adapter to verify the accuracy of data transfer on the SCSI bus. Data verification is a
desirable option, so SCSI Parity Checking is normally enabled by
default. To use this option most effectively, be sure that it is enabled
on each SCSI device, as well as on the host adapter. To enable/disable

SCSI Parity Checking on the host adapter, See SCSI Parity Checking on
page 2-17. Consult your hardware documentation for instructions on
enabling SCSI Parity Checking on peripherals.
Note: The only time you should disable SCSI Parity
Checking on the host adapter is when your system
includes a SCSI device that does not support this
option. Again, consult the hardware documentation for
the device.
Setting Enable Disconnection
In the DOS environment you can increase performance slightly if
you disable SCSI Disconnection when there is only a host adapter
and a single disk device on the SCSI bus. You should enable this
option, however, if you have more devices on the SCSI bus.
Fast SCSI Operation
If you have SCSI-2 devices, and would like to transfer data at
10 MBytes/sec, Fast SCSI Operation must be enabled. When Fast
SCSI Operation is enabled, the total length of all cables (internal and
external) connected to the bus should not exceed 3 meters to ensure
reliable operation.
DOS/Windows Performance
Adaptec's EZ-SCSI I/O Operating Environment Software is
designed not only to simplify installation of device drivers under
DOS, but also includes ASPI management software to provide
enhanced Windows support. The drivers that are installed will give
DOS users the best performance possible under not only DOS, but
Windows.

Disk Drives Over 1 GByte
▼ ▼ ▼ ▼
D
Extended Translation (Using MS-DOS 5.0)
Adaptec host adapters have always supported the full range of disk
drive sizes under all major operating systems. As disk drives have
recently grown beyond 1 GByte in formatted capacity, they have run
up against the DOS 1024 cylinder limit.
To continue its support for all SCSI disk drive capacities under DOS,
Adaptec has introduced an extended translation scheme for the
AMM-1570/1572. This feature supports disk drives up to 8 GBytes
in size under DOS. To enable this feature, refer to Extended Translation for Drive > 1GByte on page 2-15.
The DOS 1 GByte Limit
All current versions of DOS are limited to 1024 cylinders per drive.
The standard translation scheme for SCSI host adapters, using 64
heads and 32 sectors, provides a maximum accessible capacity of
1 GByte.
To eliminate the 1 GByte limit, Adaptec's extended translation feature uses 255 heads and 63 sectors, extending the disk drive capacity
limit under DOS to 8 GBytes; the maximum partition size is 2 GByte.
Caution: If you have already partitioned a large disk
drive with one translation method, conversion to
another method will erase your data. Be sure to back up
your disk drive prior to any change in the translation
method used.
When to Use Extended Translation
With MS-DOS 5.0 and Above
NetWare® 386 and the newer versions of UNIX® do not share the
1024 cylinder limit of DOS and do not require extended translation
to support large disk drives.

Drives With Mixed Partitions
Do not use extended translation on drives formatted with two or
more partitions for different operating systems. Use standard translation. The sum of the DOS partitions will be less than 1 GByte.
Partitions for UNIX and NetWare can be larger than 1 GByte when
using standard translation.
Note: UNIX is understood to be AT&T®/USL all ver-
sions, SCO® 3.2.4 (or later) and ISC 3.0 (or later).
Using Fdisk
To install a new disk, or to repartition an existing disk, use the fdisk
DOS utility as you normally would. The cylinder size increases to
8 MBytes when you enable extended translation. The size of the partition you request must therefore be a multiple of 8 MBytes. If you
request a partition size that is not a multiple of 8 MBytes, fdisk will
round up to the nearest whole multiple of 8 MBytes.
Questions and Answers About Extended
Translation
What happens if I enable extended translation with SCSI drives that are less than 1
GByte in capacity?
Drives handled by the BIOS use extended translation provided they
are over 1 GByte in formatted capacity. Drives with less than 1 GByte
of formatted capacity use standard translation regardless of whether
extended translation is enabled.
What if I have more than two fixed disk drives on the host adapter?
You can use up to seven fixed disk drives under the BIOS provided
you are running MS-DOS 5.0 and above.

Bus
A pathway for data in a computer system. All PCs have an
expansion bus, which is
designed to host add-on (expansion) devices, such as modems,
adapter boards, and video
adapters. Expansion devices use
the bus to send data to and
receive data from the PC's CPU
or memory. ISA, EISA, Micro
Channel®, and VL-Bus™ are the
major bus standards used in PCs.
disk drives and CD-ROM drives.
Each kind of device requires a
different driver. Device driver
programs are stored on a PC's
fixed disk and are loaded into
memory at boot time.
Differential
A SCSI message that clears all
pending activity in the SCSI
peripheral device target to
which it is addressed.
A term referring to the electrical
characteristics of the signals used
on the SCSI bus interface. Differential signals occupy two conductors with a positive (+) and
negative (-) polarity component
of the signal. This minimizes the
effect of common mode signal
noise and allows the SCSI bus to
operate reliably over greater
distances at a higher speed.
Bus Mastering
Direct Memory Access
A high performance method of
data transfer in which the host
adapter's onboard processor
handles the transfer of data
directly to and from a computer's memory without intervention from the computer's
microprocessor. This is the fastest method of data transfer
available for multitasking operating systems.
A mechanism that allows hardware control of the transfer of
streams of data to or from the
main memory of a computing
system. The mechanism may
require setup by the host software. After initialization, it automatically sequences the required
data transfer and provides the
necessary address information.
Byte
Disconnect is the function that
occurs when a target releases
control of the SCSI bus, allowing
the bus to go to the Bus Free
phase. Reconnect is the function
that occurs when a target selects
an initiator to continue an operation after a disconnect.
Bus Device Reset
An 8-bit unit of data. A byte is
normally the smallest addressable unit of memory and the
smallest unit of transfer on the
SCSI bus.
Device Driver
A software program that enables
a PC to communicate with
peripheral devices, such as fixed

an extension of the 16-bit ISA
standard, allowing expansion
devices to move data 32 bits at a
time on the PC bus (also called
Micro Channel architecture).
sending the requested data over
the bus, etc. The AMM-1570/
1572 and all other Adaptec host
adapters fully support
multithreaded I/O.
MIDI
PC-AT
Musical Instrument Digital
Interface. A standard communications protocol for the connection of a computer to a musical
synthesizer.
A family of small computers
sold by IBM, also called the Personal Computer/AT family of
computers. The name is trademarked by IBM.
Multitasking Operation
PIO
The execution of commands in
such a way that more than one
command is in progress at the
same time. Multitasking allows
a computer system to take
advantage of overlapping activities by using resources that are
temporarily not required for
other operations. More than one
program or more than one portion of a program may be operating in parallel.
See Programmed Input/Output
Multithreaded I/O
A method by which data is
accessed simultaneously from
multiple SCSI devices to
increase a system's data transfer
rate. For example, if the system
needs data from two disk
devices it requests data from the
first device, which temporarily
disconnects from the SCSI bus
while it is seeking the data. During this delay the system
requests data from the second
device, and while that device
disconnects from the bus to seek
the data, the first device starts
Programmed Input/Output
A method of data transfer in
which the host microprocessor
transfers data to and from memory via the computer's I/O
ports. PIO enables very fast data
transfer rates, especially in
single-tasking operating systems
like DOS. The AMM-1570/1572
uses this method of data
transfer.
RAM
Random Access Memory. Memory of which any byte can be
accessed directly in a single
memory cycle. Information can
be read from and written to the
memory.
ROM
Read-Only Memory. Memory in
which any byte can be read but
not written.

Scatter/Gather
A device driver feature that
allows the host adapter to modify the transfer data pointer so
that a single host adapter transfer can transfer to many segments of memory in a single
transfer, minimizing interrupts
and overhead.
SCB
SCSI Control Block. The mechanism used in Emulation Mode to
transfer control information to
and from the board.
SCSI
Small Computer Systems Interface. A bus interface standard
that defines physical and electrical characteristics for hardware
devices. SCSI provides a standard interface that enables many
different kinds of devices, such
as disk drives, magneto optical
disks, CD-ROM drives, and tape
drives to interface with the host
computer.
SCSI Bus
One or more SCSI peripheral
devices and a host adapter, connected by cables in a daisy-chain
configuration. The bus may
include both internal and external SCSI devices. In systems that
have more than one host
adapter, each adapter has its
own separate SCSI bus.
SCSI Device
A device such as a host adapter
board, fixed disk drive, or CDROM drive that conforms to the
SCSI interface standard and is
attached to a SCSI bus cable. The
device may be an initiator, a target, or capable of both types of
operation.
SCSI ID
An identifier assigned to SCSI
devices that enables them to
communicate with a computer
when they are attached to a host
adapter via the SCSI bus. Each
SCSI host adapter board has 8
available SCSI IDs with the
numbers 0 through 7. Usually
the host adapter itself is
assigned SCSI ID 7, and fixed
disk devices are assigned to
SCSI IDs 0 and 1.
Single-ended
A term referring to the electrical
characteristics of the signals
used on the SCSI bus interface.
Single-ended signals occupy a
single conductor and are references to a common ground carried on the cable between the
SCSI components attached. Most
SCSI devices use single-ended
grounding.
Some SCSI devices use a differential grounding scheme. These
devices are not supported by the
AMM-1570/1572. Differential
devices may be damaged if you
connect them and the
AMM-1570/1572 to the same
SCSI bus.

Glossary
Single-threaded Operation
Operation of the computer system such that only one program
can be operating or active at a
time. The system must wait until
all resources are available before
starting an operation, and it cannot start another operation until
the first one is completed.
Small Computer Systems Interface
See SCSI
Synchronous Data Transfer
A method of data transfer in
which data on the SCSI bus is
clocked with fixed-length, fixedfrequency strobe pulses. The
acknowledgments may be
delayed several clock periods
from the data requests. Synchronous data transfer can be used
only for data transmission on
the SCSI bus. It cannot be used
for Command, Message, and
Status transmission.
Synchronous Data Transfer Negotiation
The message exchange between
the initiator and the target that
allows the negotiation of the
data transfer frequency and
delay between requests and
acknowledgments required for
synchronous data transfer. Once
negotiated, synchronous data
transfer parameters remain
unchanged until certain
reinitialization activities occur.
Tagged Queuing
A SCSI-2 feature that allows the
SCSI device to queue return data
commands in a different order
than requested by the SCSI host
adapter, thereby increasing
performance.
Target (or Target Device)
A SCSI device that performs an
operation requested by an initiator. The target may be a peripheral device, such as a disk drive
performing a service for an initiator. The target may also be a
host adapter performing a
processor-type device service for
an initiator.
Termination
A physical requirement of the
SCSI bus. The devices at the
physical ends of the SCSI bus
must have terminating resistors
either installed or enabled;
devices in the middle of the bus
must have terminating resistors
either removed or disabled.
VL-Bus
The VESA local-bus developed
by the Video Electronics Standard Association to provide a
high-speed local-bus for highperformance peripherals within
a computer system.
Word
A 2-byte (16-bit) unit of data.
Zero Latency Reads
A method of minimizing
mechanical limitations of fixed
disks by requesting data in an
unordered sequence. The data is
reordered by the host adapter.
