Hi have a scsi card adaptec 29160LP OEM.......this is fitted to my NF7S motherboard and it works fine.......with my 2 hard 18gig 15000rpm and a ibm ultrastra.....both 160 lvd. (using XP professional)

This is connected up with a cable connector with what appears to be a passive terminator......

When I check the speed of the card it appears to be working at 8bit mode....which is 40 meg is reliable and works fine though - just slow.

Is the termination giving a problem???? do I need an active terminator???
I can't see why it's so slow.........can anybody help????

When you boot what speed are the drives showing when the 29160 bios shows the drives? Open the scsi host utilities hitting Ctrl+A during bios and check the drives. I've never used a passive terminator, always an active terminator and all seven scsi drives run at 160. Also make sure you using the correct "LV" scsi cable.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
