Thanks for the replies from u guys. Hmmm....Setting
"Force SE" jumper is something new to me. Does this
mean SS20 won't detect the LVD harddisk without
setting this jumper ?
What does "Single Ended" means ? Can I still chain up
the 611 case unipack or 411 case after setting this
jumper on ?
That day I was connecting the 611 case to the SS20
DB50 connector using a 50-68pin scsi cable(530-2115).
Did I do wrong ?
Anyway I'll try setting the SE jumper during the
weekend. Will come back to bother u guys again if it
doesn't work ;)
