scsi termination woes
grr, gave my mom my old hard drive, and as usual, can't get the new one to work right. stats: umax j700/sys8.1, drive is a seagate barracuda 4gig, ST15150N. it worked fine at id=2 when the old hd was in (at mb->2HD->CD->zip->0HD). present chain is mb->CD->zip->0HD, which was my old setup. i've looked through the manual and have tried many jumper settings. the drive is set for id=0, i can set term power a. from drive (default) b. from scsi bus c. to scsi bus d. to scsi bus and drive. tried all options, machine chimes, mouse appears, i get the smiley mac, and it freezes. if i knew how to turn the termination on on either the internal zip or internal 4x cdrom (apple-branded), then i'd move the hd to an earlier spot on the chain, but everything is trial by error, and i'm tired of the errors. please help.
