Setting the Jumpers

Set the jumpers on the rear of the drive in accordance with the
configuration of your computer system.
The illustration below shows the jumpers set to "ID 6" and
termination "ON", this is the default set by the factory.
SCSI ID must not be the same as any other device on that SCSI bus. Refer to the
table below for ID settings.

Important SCSI rule
The beginning and end of any SCSI bus must always be terminated. No other point
on the SCSI bus should be terminated. If the CRX-160S is at one end of the SCSI
bus set the termination jumper ON.
If there is either no internal or no external SCSI devices attached to your SCSI
controller then the SCSI controller becomes one end of the SCSi bus, hence it must
be terminated. Most SCSI controllers set their termination automatically.
If unsure on how to configure your SCSI bus then consult your PC dealer or visit our
support web site for assistance - http://www.sony.com.au/support/itp
