I recently obtained a scsi zip drive and a buncha disks, so I went out
and bought one of those Zip Zoom cards (it was cheap) ...and to make a
long story short, I set it up (I think I did it right!), but alas, it
didn't work right. So, two days later, I come to you guys for help.
this is what I get when I boot:
aha152x: processing commandline: ok
detected 1 controller(s)
aha152x0: vital data: PORTBASE=0x340, IRQ=9, SCSI ID=7, reconnect=enabled, parity=enabled, synchronous=disabled, delay=100, extended translation=disabled
aha152x: trying software interrupt, ok.
scsi0 : Adaptec 152x SCSI driver; $Revision: 1.18 $

Detected scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 6, lun 0

sda : READ CAPACITY failed.
sda : status = 0, message = 00, host = 0, driver = 28
sda : extended sense code = 3
sda : block size assumed to be 512 bytes, disk size 1GB.
sda:scsi0: MEDIUM ERROR on channel 0, id 6, lun 0, CDB: Request Sense 00 00 00
extra data not valid Current error sd08:00: sense key Medium Error
Additional sense indicates Defect list not found
scsidisk I/O error: dev 08:00, sector 0
unable to read partition table
From my understanding, the "READ CAPACITY failed" message happens when
there is no disk in the drive...but of course I have a disk in the drive.
If any of this information is in a FAQ or howto that I missed, please
point me in the right direction. Thanks.
