Why not SCSI ID 6?
– Yes, SCSI ID 6 should have the same problems, being on the other channel. The advantage of SCSI ID 6 is that, according to true SCSI specs, this is the normal first bootup device, and it is always polled on bootup. It has the highest priority level in SCSI controllers (hardware). This means that any device on SCSI ID 6 really has higher priority than any other device, but it is immediately dechanneled to the second channel by SCSI Manager 4.3. In the end, it’s slower, but it will always show up. CD-R addendum – Macintoshes with CD-R problems are often exacerbated by a common issue – if a second hard drive is placed at SCSI ID 1, and the CD-R is at SCSI ID 5, there is a perfect timing issue – ID 1 is the mirror on the chain that can take up the timing loop that would include the SCSI ID 5 scan. More times than I care to remember, moving the CD-R to ID 2 solved the problem without issue. Corrupted hard drives/removable carts – these both had data reliability problems with long copies o
