SCSI Card with E6 Scanner-Won't Work!

I just bought a new E-6 scanner and I can’t get the AHA152X.ADD driver to see
the card. The message I get is the it can’t load it. I have tried every switch
reference in the help files and nothing has corrected it.

What I am I doing wrong or is the SCSI card defective?

THanks in advance.

    Paul,  just a quick first thought, is the scsi device number, on the scanner, unique from
    all other scsi devices?  and where is the scsi line terminated?

    Paul,

    I’m assuming you got an AVA1502-AE Adaptec SCSI card and Impos/2.

    First, check your IRQ’s. Go to a OS2 prompt and do ‘rmview /irq’. This
    will give you all assigned IRQ’s. Be sure that the jumper on the SCSI
    card is set to use a free IRQ. It defaults to 10.

    There are other settings (I/O port, etc.)  as well which may be in
    conflict. You may review these with rmview as well. Default settings
    are indicated on the Adaptec info that comes with the SCSI card.

    Be sure that the following lines (with appropriate drive letters for
    your setup) have been added to your CONFIG.SYS file:

    REM ——————– Compart Impos/2 Version 2.0
    ——————–

    BASEDEV=AHA152X.ADD
    DEVICE=H:\IMPOS20\CPASPI.SYS
    BASEDEV=OS2ASPI.DMD /SHARE

    Finally, as another poster noted, the scanner is given a SCSI id. The
    E6 is set with a selector switch on the back of the scanner. It
    defaults to 6. This must to set to a unique value.

    When you boot, you should see the Impos/2 drivers load and not get any
    SYSxxxx messages. If you get an SYSxxxx message, you problably still
    have a resource conflict of some kind.

    Also, whatever software your’re using probably needs to know the SCSI
    id for the scanner.

    Good luck!

    PS: I really like the E6 I just got.
