Windows 7 and Scsi?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have installed a Scsi hard drive as a slave drive in windows 7 64 bit. Windows will see the scsi controller and install it fine. But it will not see the scsi hard drive that is attached to it. Is their something else you need to do to get scsi hard drives working in windows 7 64 bit?

Thanks

Scsi is old old tech that windows 7 does not natively support without vendor drivers. If the manufacture of your scsi setup has released a x64 driver for win7 you will be in luck, if not, its probably been written off.

That is the thing. Windows 7 sees and installs the scsi controller itself without a problem. But it does not see the drive attached to it..

Does the scsi controller require you to setup the drive through it's config utility first?

Ok here is another thing. The controller is seen in the device manager, and so is the scsi hard drive when I look under hard drives. But when I goto my computer the scsi hard drive is not their. Do I need to enable it somewhere for it to show up in my computer?

Right click my computer then select manage. Then select storage or drives (forget which). the wizard should start or you should see the drive. Right click on the drive and select format.

(Guys, I can't get to a windows 7 machine right now, correct my steps please)...

Ok the manage storage does see the scsi drive. But it does not have a drive letter assignment. And most options on the drive are greyed out. So my pc sees the scsi drive but it will not let me access it.

Will it let you format and add partitions to the drive?
