Squirrel SCSI PCMCIA

Hi there.
Does anyone have the drivers for the squirrel pcmcia scsi?

I have 2 squirrel cards here and I just dug out my old SCSI tower and I can't find the drivers for it anywhere...

So can someone plz help? Or point me to a place to get them?

Both the Squirrel and Surf Squirrel driver disks can be found in the drivers section of the Big Book of Amiga Hardware site (look under SCSI_Controllers).

Thanks for all your help all. Got it up and running now.

Another quick question... How would I get a SCSI Iomega Jaz drive to work? (It's not in the tower yet, but I'm not going to if it can't be done)

Should pretty much be plug 'n' play. However, if you run into trouble there's a bunch of Jaz drivers and tools programs on Aminet that will make the job easier.

The easiest prog I have found for this is one called MountDos on Aminet. From memory there was no messing around with mountlists. And you don't need to reformat the disks - you can leave the FAT formatted - ideal for Amiga-PC file transfer. The file is in the Zone. Here is the aminet readme.

Quote:
Short: Read & list/mount MS-Dos partition-table.
Author: sintonen@iki.fi (Harry "Piru" Sintonen)
Uploader: sintonen@iki.fi (Harry "Piru" Sintonen)
Version: 1.2
Type: disk/misc
Requires: OS 2.04+

MountDos12

This is version 1.2 (third, improved release) of MountDos.
MountDos reads the entire partition table of an MS-Dos HD (or alike:
ZIP/JAZZ) connected to the Amiga (either IDE or SCSI). It can (optional)
do three things:
- List the contents of the partition table
- Generate mountlists for the entries in the partition table
- Automatic mount all partitions in the table which are supported by
CrossDOS or fat95.
The device and unit can be specified. Extended partitions are supported.
Source is included (in 'AmigaE'). Kickstart 37+.


New in v1.2
-----------

o bugfixes
- The Workbench startup was broken in v1.1, fixed.

o improvements
- Added dozens of new partition identifiers.
- Added FAT32 support with fat95 (disk/misc/fat95.lha).
- Added 'StackSize = 2048' for mountlists.
- Added "MaxTransfer" and "Buffers" keywords to generated mountlists,
default maxtransfer is 0xfffe00 and buffers is 20.
- Changed mountlist "BufMemType" from MEMF_ANY to MEMF_PUBLIC.
- The new options (and tooltypes):

MAXTRANSFER MaxTrasfer for the mountlists, in hex or decimal
BUFFERS/N Buffers to use per mounted partition
FAT95/S Mount the partition using fat95 instead of CrossDOS
INCLHIDDEN/S Include hidden partitions to operation


Some old IDE devices misbehave with big MaxTransfer value. If this
seems to be the problem, use MAXTRANSFER 0x1fe00 or 0xfe00 to fix
it.

The total memory taken by the 'buffers' depend on the filesystem
implementation, currently 1 buffer = 512 bytes. Note that the
filesystem might round up the given value.

Now you can mount FAT32 drives with the excellect (and free!) fat95
filesystem. No longer 4gig disk limit! Download disk/misc/fat95.lha
and copy the filesystem to l:. Now you can specify FAT95 switch to
use l:fat95 instead of l:CrossDOSFileSystem. Also, as a bonus, fat95
give long filename support (upto 65 chars).

In some cases DOS hard disk might have hidden partitions. INCLHIDDEN
option can be used with LIST, GENERATE and MOUNT to include these
hidden partitions.
