  • Page 16: Setting The Scsi Id

    Setting the SCSI ID Follow these steps to set the SCSI ID. Caution Before disconnecting power to any device on the SCSI bus, make sure the bus is inactive. Switching off power while the SCSI bus is active can result in data loss or indeterminate bus states.

  • Page 17: Setting The Operation Mode

    • Select 0 to operate the optical disk drive as an optical memory device. • Select 1 to operate the optical disk drive as a direct access device. Hewlett-Packard recommends operating the optical disk drive as an optical memory device. The direct access mode can be used with systems that do not recognize optical memory devices.

  • Page 18: Connecting To The Host Computer

    Connecting to the Host Computer When you are ready to connect the optical disk drive to your host computer, note the following cautions. Then complete the steps below. Caution Perform a full system backup prior to connecting the optical disk drive to the host com- puter for full data protection.

  • Page 19

    Note For some host computers to recognize the optical disk drive, the power to the disk drive must be switched on before the power to the host computer. Install the drivers appropriate to your host system. ® If you are connecting the optical disk drive to an HP-UX 10.0 host, refer to Appendix B for configuration information.

  • Page 23: Choosing Optical Disks

    Choosing Optical Disks Optical disks are available in three capacities: 650 Mbytes, 1.3 Gbytes, and 2.6 Gbytes. The optical disk drive can read from and write to both 1.3 Gbyte disks and 2.6 Gbyte disks. The drive can read from, but not write to, 650 Mbyte disks. To receive maximum storage capacity, you should choose 2.6 Gbyte optical disks.

  • Page 24: Labeling Optical Disks

    Labeling Optical Disks Make it a practice to label your optical disks. Adhesive labels are provided with each disk. You can use the following labeling suggestions: • date of format or initialization • disk owner (group/department, etc.) • storage purpose (backup, old version of operating system, etc.) Apply the label to the optical disk in an area that does not interfere with the movement of the metal shutter.

  • Page 25: Write-protecting Optical Disks

    Write-Protecting Optical Disks Each side of an optical disk can be write-protected by sliding the write-protect button in the direction of the arrow on the disk. With rewritable optical disks, the use of the write protect button ensures data safety for files that have been previously written to the disk and prevents any additional files being written to the disk.
