Please help. Accelerator card breaks startup-sequence scsi.device (CF Card)?

Hi all,

I am new here, and have read the rules. I want to be an active member.

I recently bought an Amiga A1200 at an auction house, fulfilling a childhood dream.

I have installed a 4Gb CF card and a Viper II 68030 Accelerator with 8Mb Ram.

Before installing the accelerator card, the system loaded fine and everything worked, except for not having enough RAM to run WHDload games. I fitted the accelerator card, and now on booting I get an error message stating:

Code:
Loading failed: object not found
C:\LoadModule failed returncode 10
The card is registering okay, and the 8Mb RAM is recognised.

Commenting the following lines in the startup-sequence allow the system to load, but when I double-click a WHDload game to run it, the task bar at the top of workbench quickly flashes "attempting to load[...]", but nothing further happens:

Code:
IF EXISTS DEVS:scsi.device
  C:LoadModule DEVS:scsi.device
EndIF
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I am really looking forward to playing through some of my childhood memories once more. Below is my startup-sequence:

Fixed thanks to a Retro-Nerd. Thank you so much Retro-Nerd.
Playing Syndicate as we speak. I am putting it down to slightly dodgy RAM on the accelerator card.

Well, i have a 1230 M-Tec and had some strange WHDLoad bugs too with 8MB. In ClassicWB s: you find the whdload.prefs. Open it with an editior and remove the ";" in this line. This fixed all my problems. Worth a try.
Code:
;NoFilter ;disable audio filter
;NoFlushMem ;do not flush memory
NoMemReverse ;do not allocate memory reverse
