Step 1: Opening the Computer

First turn off computer and remove / unplug all power cables!
Remove computer cover as directed in the User's Manual.

Step 2: SCSI Configuration

Locate the 50 pin SCSI cable in your computer. One end of the cable is
connected to the SCSI host adapter card as shown below.
SCSI Host Adapter Card
The following types of cables may be installed in your computer:
Find this
flat cable!
SCSI Cable
*Adapter required (not included)
There may already be internal or external SCSI devices (HDD, Scanner,
CD-ROM) connected to the SCSI cable. If so, determine the SCSI ID# of
each SCSI device. This information is required for Step 5 "Setting the
Jumpers." Refer to SCSI device(s) for ID data. In some cases, a SCSI chip
set may be implemented on the motherboard.

Step 3: Finding the Connector

The SCSI cable should have 1 or more unused connectors on the end
opposite the adapter, as shown, find a connector not in use.
We recommend a connector at the very end of the 50 pin SCSI cable.

If no free 50 pin SCSI connector exists, see "Troubleshooting", page 18.

Step 4: Choosing the Configuration

SCSI ID selection
34 Pin
Only the last physical SCSI device needs to be terminated.
Pin 1 (red)
If no other SCSI devices are in the system, we recommend the default
jumper settings. In this case, go on to Step 6: "Connecting the Drive".
If one or more SCSI ID's are assigned, you must determine if the
default ID# 6 is free. If SCSI ID# 6 is assigned, you must change the
CD-R drive to a free ID# via jumpers at rear of drive (see Step 5).
If CD-RW drive is the last physical device on SCSI cable, leave
"Active Term" jumper in place.
Previous last SCSI device may need to be "un-terminated".
If CD-RW drive is not on end of SCSI cable or last physical device,
remove the "Active Term" jumper and assure the last physical SCSI
device is properly terminated or activated.
