Yes, when I switched to the cable with the built in terminator I
disabled the tape drive's on-board termination.
It's been several years since I used a 2940 and don't
remember the cards
configuration settings. Have you tried the Adaptec and Seagate (they bought
Conner) web sites?
The Adaptec 2940s are fairly basic SCSI cards that have been around for
ages. I used to use this card and tape drive in a different box several
years ago with Red Hat 7.2 and 7.3 and never had any problems with it.
"It just worked" back then.
