Chapter 43. Adding Removable Media > Installing an External Removable Media Dri...

Installing an External Removable Media Drive

External removable media drives offer you a few more choices depending on what configuration each manufacturer decides to offer. External models can attach to a SCSI, parallel, USB, Firewire, or USB port on your PC.

To install your external removable media drive, simply plug it in to the appropriate connection port on your PC and then run the accompanying software to install the appropriate hardware driver. Remember, if you are installing a SCSI external removable media drive, be sure to check the SCSI ID to make sure that it is not already being used by another device on your SCSI chain. If your drive is at the end of your SCSI chain, make sure that it is properly terminated. In most cases, the drive comes with a terminator, and your documentation will explain how to activate the terminator.
