ICD ADscsi 2080

I have just got one of the above to put into my A1500(A2000) It came with 2 x 1mb 30pin simms(they are in the 2 slots nerist the mobo) on it but when i put it into my amiga the power light just flashes unless i turn off the ram jumper, now to my question apart from the ram one, does anyone have a copy of the manual, or give me a full breakdown on the list of jumpers, and is there any perticular slot that this card should be in?

The possibilities are:

- Bad SIMM, replace with a good pair;

- Lack of software (try Amiga Hardware Database. I didn't see the manual there, I'm afraid. But the software is there;

- Too much RAM on the Zorro bus. The RAM on the auto-config space must be less than 8Mb in total, counting all the boards you have in your A2000.

- Bad contact between one of the SIMM and the SIMM socket.

Try cleaning the SIMM contacts, then. Also check the slots on your A2000.

Try to boot using a disk with HDtoolbox or HDInstTools in it and try to partition/format it again.

If no-go, you need to find a smaller HD. Those earlier controllers can't handle HDs with more than 1Gb (and some even don't manage ones bigger than 256Mb!).
