Hi all I have an early SCSI Data Frame 20 HD, and it's the type with 2 sets of jumpers along the bottom of the board jumpers 1-4 on the first block/set and 5-9 on the second block/set. I have the device setup correct on the first set to be Device 4, but I didn't know what I was doing at first and changed the second set of jumpers too on the 5-9 jumpers and they are changing the kind of device it's recognized as it seems like, because after I format with manager it shows all is good and mounts the drive but when I restart the drive icon is gone again and I have to reformat with manager and mount again for it to show back up. After I moved jumpers around on 5-9 it will give messages like no media inserted and such like it's a tape drive so I must have changed what kind it is recognized as with set 5-9. I am positive I no longer have the second set of jumpers set right now bc it was working fine before I changed them. I should have taken a pic b4 I moved them! Can anyone tell me what the second set of jumpers 5-9 should be as far as up and down jumpers or send me a pic pretty please. I can't find one anywhere on the net with the internal for the DataFrame 20 HD with the 2 sets of jumper blocks. Would really appreciate any help!!!
Thanks all

Any good picture of the jumper area and probably of the labels on the drive ?

I don't have a good pic but I can take one. It wont really help you though because nothing is labeled, but it's called a DATA Frame 20 SCSI HD By SuperMac. I realized this post should actually be in the Macintosh 6800 section also oops! This HD is talked about in the Macintosh HD Museum. There must be 2 versions, one with jumpers and one without, but mine does have two sets of jumpers inside when you take the cover off. First set for device and second set for type. I am not getting the type correct with tons of combinations though on the second set of jumpers after changing them, so I really need a pic of another one that's working properly with the correct pattern. Can I bump this topic to the Mac/Lisa section somehow? Thanks
