SCSI ID - All SCSI devices attached to your
computer are assigned a SCSI-ID number from 0 to
7. Your DVD-ROMs SCSI ID must be set so that its
ID number does not conflict with any other devices
SCSI-ID in your system. In most cases, your DVD-
ROM will be set to SCSI ID 4 at the factory. Also
note that your SCSI interface card in most cases
has a SCSI ID of 7. This following chart (figure 3)
shows the jumper settings for the eight possible ID
Parity - In the OFF mode, the parity bit check function on the SCSI data bus is activated which
enhances data bus reliability. Therefore, the jumper should remain in the OFF mode.
A block of mode select jumpers are located on the
rear of the DVD-ROM. If a jumper covers both pins
on the jumper block, it is ON; if there is no jumper
or only one of the pins is covered, the jumper is
OFF. The jumper settings include SCSI ID, Parity,
Termination, Block Selectability, Test and Power
