what the heck!? i thought we left scsi behind. this makes me feel like the old days with little number-setters on back and nothing ever terminating properly or mounting when needed.

running 10.2.8, have 2 metal gear boxes and one acom box. all have different hd brands loaded inside. various GB rating and access speed ratings. none will mount unless they are first in line from the mac. any drive that comes after another drive will casue all to not mount, whether other drives are turned on or not. any ideas? ugh.
