The one problem I've encountered with the A3000 SCSI is that it doesn't
autodetect and automount removable devices (more specifically, the SyQuest,
CDs work fine) when they are inserted.

Here are some programs for fiddling with the NVRAM settings for the A3000
SCSI. Haven't tried them yet:
SCSIPrefsMUI.lha 13231 ---arwed 20-Apr-01 21:06:09

SCSI-Prefs.lha 7561 ---arwed 20-Apr-01 21:14:39
: http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/aminet/disk/misc/SCSI-Prefs.lha

And here's the program I use for manually mounting the SyQuest:
SCSIMounter203.lha 32047 ---arwed 20-Apr-01 21:15:08
: http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/aminet/disk/misc/SCSIMounter203.lha

That one's integrated in OS 3.5 and forth, though.

En ligne avec Thor 2.6a.
You can't prove anything about a program written in C or FORTRAN. It's really
just Peek and Poke with some syntactic sugar.
