And the SCSI Format program is only for the SCSI Bus and not for the ACSI Bus ...

Alex: not much to report, unfortunately I failed to install the 100MB drive for some reason. Formats fine on the TT but the ATW doesn't see it at boot. This drive has a switch for scsi id and parity to enable (NEC D3856) and terminators are present. Tried various settings but no luck so far. scsi driver hangs when booting, no drive detected.
The spare ST157N works fine and pops up when loading scsi.prg from auto.
I tried also a 365MB scsi (quantum lightning) but this one is a failure so far too: using hddriver on the TT it detects the drive, I can partition it, then when restart after partitioning, it says no partitions found right at next boot. Drive terminators are missing but maybe it's a parity error? Since no partitions, the ATW wont' see anything either, however the name of this one pops up when loading the scsi driver. So I assume it'll work if the problem with partitions is fixed.
I'd be happy just to use one of the bigger ones but also to solve these riddles, I'm not sure why is this happening and need more time to spend.....
I just want to say I appreciate that you are sharing this with us. I'm certain this is frustrating, that being said, I'm envious of your opportunity to own and "wrestle with" an ATW800!!
