Same here. the 2930 series (most are U but I have a u2B)is a good
board that seems to be unbreakable. I must have at least 6 in use
plus another here at home. Two of those were installed to support
Plextor CDwriters exclusively on systems with IDE disks. Mixing drive
interface types on SCSI busses is somthing I DO NOT do, two many
performance impacts.
