Re: firewire config (Nik 8000 with Epson 1680)



Hi, with the scsci you need a termination at both ends of the Lun, some
adaptors get picky if you turn hardware off that is either in the middle or
is the terminating end. You could check the adaptor and make sure its set to
Auto for termination. I only use 1394 for one device, so can impart any
knowledge on that, SCSI, been through the mill a couple of times with this
though.
Regards
Brian
