    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 :]
