Troubleshooting a SCSI setup with an Atto PCIe card in a G5 quadcore [message #366569] Sat, 21 April 2018 16:40

Anybody here that has some experience with Atto PCIe SCSI-cards in a G5
quad running Tiger? I've just put an ATTO ExpressPCI UL5D in my quad
connected via an internal HD68 to 50pin and 50pin to external HD50
connector. The quad didn't start at first, apparently it tried to start up
from my old Microtek scanner

I can see the ATTO card in System profile now as two pci-bridges in slot 3
where the card is seated and two Atto Express PCI UL5D cards in slot 7x4
plus under Parallel SCSI I see two SCSI Parallel Domain devices, 0 and 1.

The ATTO Configuration Tool didn't install properly and whenever I had the
external HD50 connector engaged the quad wouldn't start, no matter if the
scanner was on or off.

So then I uninstalled the ATTO Config. Tool and everything works but no
cigar, no scanner is seen by VueScan. I bought the Atto card especially to
keep using my Microtek Scanmaker III.

What can I possibly try to get my setup working again? The scanner worked
perfectly with my G4 MDD connected to an Adaptec PCI card. RIP.

TIA for your replies, best regards,
