[QUOTE=MC99;2058803]brendan - you have a lot of good info on your wiki. I’ll have to look into it this weekend. thanks!
I have a couple PC controlled MediaTechnics Fushion 6-drive autoloaders, and some older 6-drive Fortuna models.[/QUOTE]
Ah, me too, me too.
[QUOTE=MC99;2058803]The drives/autoloader are always connected, and usually powered up at the same time as Windows, although I could start up Windows first. If I shuffle the power on the Autoloader/drives without rebooting the PC, I’ve found that some firewire bridgeboard brands are more likely to cause the SCSI IDs to swap than others. Some bridgeboards also won’t work with newer plextor drives (240A and forward for example) either.[/QUOTE]
So the SCSI IDs keep switching up, but the drive letters always stay the same?
[QUOTE=MC99;2058803]I was leaning towards upgrading to SATA drives this year because of the less bulky/messy cable setup. I just wanted to see if anyone had tried SATA with software that relies on SCSI IDs.[/QUOTE]
Not me, not yet.
