Be Careful Of SCSI ID Conflicts

Since SCSI2SD allows you to have many ID's on one board (v6.x allows up to 7), and the SCSI spec only allows 8 per LUN (and we only can use one LUN), there isn't much room left for other devices - or the sampler even!

To use SCSI2SD (or any SCSI device) properly, ** every device must have it's own SCSI ID number.**

The most common mistake is that your sampler's "self-ID" - that is, the SCSI ID it itself is set to - is also one that is set up on your SCSI2SD board.

To fix this, change the Self-ID of your sampler. Most samplers allow this; exceptions are the Ensoniq EPS/ASR (fixed at 3) and the Roland (fixed at 7).

Similarly, you may have an internal SCSI drive in your sampler - this is common with Kurzweil, Emu, and Akai S1000/3000. Make sure there is no conflict there too.
