SCSI Problem w/ Dell Precision 670

    I've got an Adaptec 19160 card for a Quantum LTO external drive. The
    Dell has an on-board Adaptec RAID controller. The card won't detect the
    drive, although the same card, cable and drive are detected on a
    different PC.

    I have updated the Dell's BIOS and tried different PCI slots. Is there
    some issue with the on-board controller that's causing this problem?

    Do you have a clash of SCSI id's?

    No, it doesn't work even if I change the SCSI ID. Dell says that the
    u320 card is known to work with the machine; Quantum says that my cable
    width is outside the SCSI spec with that card - but the BIOS detected it
    in a different machine, so I'm not sure where the problem is...

    Does your computer even see the card? Because even if the card and bios/drivers are accurate a conflicting memory range would cause all of this.
