  1. Final update. I received a replacement SCSI driver IC and installed it. SCSI looks normal again. The original chip is failing. Thanks again for the support
  2. Sorry, I havent checked back in. Work kept me busy. I still plan to test the cdrom internally and I ordered a SCSI ZIP drive to test with too. In the meantime I tried something new. I installed a SCSI card in my Windows XP machine and it recognized the driver correctly both configured as a CDROM and as a hard drive. So, it looks like I will need to inspect the SE motherboard carefully and maybe replace the SCSI chip. The ZIP drive will help me to figure out if the just the internal or the external connections are faulty. I will also get my other Mac SE up and r
  3. First, thank you for the replies. Here are some additional details and questions answered. Thanks dochilli for the reference to the article, I hadnt seen that one. The configuration XML is tested_cfg.xml in original post. I have attached the xml from the 2GB images I was testing with too. Both xml are the values read back from the SCSI2SD. Yes, I did have the latest firmware and I reflashed it from PC instead of my MAC to see if it made a difference. No luck. Thanks cheesestraws. I will try your suggestion. When I saw that the spaces for the CDROM also showed up
  4. More info. Plugged in my external SCSI CDROM and SCSIProbe identified it correctly, as a ROM. So, looks like the problem is with SCSI2SD. Cant believe its a config issue as the 2GB SD I last tested was pretty simple. Guess I will have to reach out to the developer, although I cant find a support contact. Any thoughts?
  5. Tried a nice simple 2GB partition with 6.0.8 and reconfigured SCSI2SD. Followed http://www.savagetaylor.com/2018/01/05/setting-up-your-vintage-classic-68k-macintosh-using-a-scsi2sd-adapter/. Wouldnt boot either. So a quick check of SCSIProbe gives me a single tape drive again. I then unplugged the power and removed the SCSI cable to the SCSI2SD and rescanned for devices just to verify the "tape drive" went away, and it did. In addition SCSIProbe warned me that the bus was terminated with the SCSI2SD removed. So, it seems the SCSI2SD is kinda of working. I just dont know if its
  6. I have been trying to get my Mac SE FDHD to boot using SCSI2SD. I have been tinkering with it on and off for a few months with no success. I finally got a copy of SCSIProbe to see what was going on. Booted with System 6.0.8 and SCSIProbe 4.3. SCSIProbe showed the problem, the Mac thinks they are tape drives. I have tried both a v6 and a v5.2 hardware and both are updated to latest firmware. I have tried using the builtin termination and an external termination. I have tried playing around with the vendor and product id to see no change. The config file f
