one more time...
Authored by: mclbruce on Mar 30, '02 12:04:41AM

I am running OS X 10.1.3 on a G4/400 Gigabit Ethernet.
I am using an external SCSI ORB drive with my Adaptec 2930CU SCSI card.
I have no other SCSI devices connected to the card.
Yes, Adaptec told me to remove the Adaptec SCSI driver. It's one file, located in System/Library/Extensions.
I don't know the exact name of the file because I removed it and trashed it a long time ago. I still have several other Adaptec files in that directory, with names such as Adaptec39160.kext
I only removed one Adaptec .kext file specific to my card. That file is also used by the 2906 card. The exact name can be found on Adaptec's web site if you are interested.

I tried it with my 2906 card and it worked perfectly. I hadn't been able to mount my SCSI HD nor my SCSI ext zip since I installed OS X, and by doing deleting the .kext directory (.kext are indeed directories, not files), everything was mounted without problems. So it appear that this little tricks works with many drives in the SCSI chain!

I'm glad this tip helped, and that you were able to add to what it is useful for. I wonder if it works for higer end Adaptec cards?

Are the .kext files directories of files? Apple calls the .kext files packages. My understanding is that packages are directories with files in them that OS X treats like single files. Packages look like files in the OS X finder.
