Bummed out SCSI

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My dad kindly got a hold of a couple of 18gb SCSI drives(i know its a small size but it was just for windows and drivers etc.) and a controller card a couple months back(his work was throwing them out since they had been lying around a while). So tonight i decided to set them up. After an hour of arranging my case i get to boot. To start it off only 1 drive was being detected. Turns out its got a knackered molex pin. As for the other drive it was being detected but was saying drive not ready. So i think a quick format will sort it out. Hit format and it comes back with an error.

So i've got 2knackered SCSI drives and a perfectly fine controller card. Wat on earth am i supposed to do?? Think dad has to find some more scsi drives for me...

It could be the Controller card at fault and not the HDD'S..Try another Controller if at all possible.
