Mounting SCSI Devices with SCSIProbe (or Other SCSI Utility)

A nearly essential tool when working with SCSI devices is a SCSI utility. An excellent popular (and free!) SCSI utility is SCSIProbe. I will use it for most of the examples described here. Another useful similar utility is Mt. Everything. Some hard disk formatting utilities (as described in Fix-It #13) can double as a SCSI utility. These may also include a companion control panel that functions similarly to SCSIProbe. Even Apple's Drive Setup can handle SCSIProbe's most critical mounting functions (and as a bonus, it recognizes ATA drives as well as SCSI ones.

The primary use of any SCSI utility is to mount SCSI devices. There are two common occasions when you need to do this: when you need to mount a SCSI device turned on after startup is completed and when a properly connected mountable SCSI device, turned on at startup but not the startup disk, does not mount automatically.
