I was talking about the SCSI2CD card connected to the other end of the bus. (Just to express it is correctly terminated)
Anyway, that wouldn’t matterat the moment since the card isn’t recognized correctly.

Inside of the controller, when only external SCSI devices are connected, one has to activate (leave off the jumper) the termination.
An SCSI-bus must be terminated on either side.
