Yamaha CD-RW - Part 6

Installation was swift and easy for the Yamaha 4261t (EIDE). The 4261t was put on the secondary IDE channel and configured as master. The drive was recognised by NT after booting up.

Installation for the Yamaha 4260t (SCSI) was a bit trickier for me. I had a myraid of SCSI peripherals (six to be exact), some which are external devices, some ultra wide, some narrow and I was a bit confused initially which to terminate and which ID to set for the 4260.

After I sort out all my problems, my Adaptec 2940UW detected the Yamaha 4260t (gee, doesn't all these numbers sound confusing??) and I am in business.

My casing was reaching it's limitations and I could not squeeze the drive into any drive bays. It can be seen from above that the drive is dangling outside my casing. Have you seen a more messy cabling than mine?

A point to note is that the packaging is superb. The drive was packed with foam to shield against any knocks and bumps during transportation etc.
