Chapter 40. Replacing, Upgrading, or Add... > Installing a SCSI Drive in Your PC

Installing a SCSI Drive in Your PC

Installing SCSI hard disk drives and devices is quite different from installing IDE drives. When you install SCSI hard disk drives and devices in your PC, you are creating what is called a “SCSI chain.” The SCSI chain consists of a SCSI controller card, a SCSI cable, one or more SCSI devices, and a SCSI terminator at each end of the chain. It is important to remember that the terminators are always at both ends of the SCSI chain. I mention this because the end of a SCSI chain can be any of the following:

  • A SCSI controller card with a built-in terminator

  • A SCSI device, such as a hard disk drive, a CD-ROM drive, a tape backup drive, a scanner, and so on, also with a built-in terminator

  • A physical SCSI terminator
