I get these with a dying cdrom. Sounds like probably a bad cable or
unterminated device. My guess is on lack of termination.
Which 1542? <none>, A, B, or C?
(I have both A and B models - apparently 1542C has some advanced
termination options.)

My computer had depended on this controller for the last 5 years... Can't
say as I've seen too many problems :)
(not anymore - now running aha2940UW... <g>. Works fine as long as you
don't enable any of the enhancements :)

Though I still use the 1542 to run that dying CDrom... I'd rather not
upgrade the cable :) It shares with 2940UW just fine without change.

G'day, eh? :)

[incidentally, it's nice running an OS that can handle multiple SCSI
controllers properly :]
