SCSI device #1
SCSI device #2
Switching the current drive
The current drive can be mounted with the SCSI device by turning on the power if only a SCSI
device is used as the current drive (no E-IDE harddisk mounted). However, if both E-IDE harddisk
and SCSI devices are used, the E-IDE hard disk always mounts as the current drive when the power
is turned ON. Based on this fact, to SAVE/LOAD data recorded on the current drive that is a SCSI
device, there is a need to switch the current drive to the SCSI device through the "Drive Sol.?"
(current drive setup) menu in the SETUP mode. Check to see that the display resembles the
following figure prior to proceeding with the SAVE/LOAD process.
Saving or loading using a SCSI hard disk as the current drive
The [SAVE/LOAD] process described up to the previous page is based on the prerequisite that an E-IDE hard
disk is used as the current drive. This section will describe the procedures necessary for the SAVE/LOAD
process when using a SCSI drive as the current drive.
SAVE/LOAD procedures using a SCSI drive, DAT, adat or backup purpose SCSI drive as the current drive are
basically the same as when using an E-IDE hard disk. However, you must be careful of the following points
when using a SCSI drive as the current drive.
Backup drive connections
Connect the backup purpose SCSI disk to the other open SCSI terminal of the SCSI device that is
already connected as the current drive, as shown in the figure below. (there is no specific
chronological order concerned when connecting the equipment)
Always terminate the empty SCSI terminal of the second SCSI device using a SCSI terminator when
connecting a second SCSI device. Leave the termination switch ON if the Zip or other SCSI devices
are switched type systems. When using a switched SCSI device for both the current drive and
backup drive, turn the switch OFF for the first device and the switch ON for the second device.
<Setting the ID number (IMPORTANT!)>
Set the SCSI devices that is the current drive with ID numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. Do not use ID number
6 for the current drive. Always assign the backup equipment to ID number "6".
If the current drive is an E-IDE harddisk then the program displayed during the SAVE/LOAD process will come
with a [P] (standing for Program) prefix, in the manner of P01, P02, etc.
If the current drive is a SCSI device then the program displayed during the SAVE/LOAD process is differentiated
with a [S] (standing for SCSI) prefix, in the manner of S01, S02, etc.
Further, in the case of a backup purpose SCSI device the prefix will be a [B] (standing for backup) prefix, in the
manner of B01, B02, etc.
Keep this in mind when executing "SAVE/LOAD" operations as mentioned earlier.
