SCSI hard drive ID cables?

OK, I admit to being an analog guy who got in over his head with his first digital recorder purchase. I'm trying to install the two SCSI hard drives and I'm stuck. They are Seagate Cheetah 15k.3, 68 pin hard drives and they are going to be mounted into Kingston DE100i-sw/b carrier/frames. Installing the frames into the recorder was easy. But installing the hard drives into their trays was not so easy. The power and audio I/O cables were obvious and easy. And if I could just mount the drives into the trays now, I could do it. But both Seagate and Kingston provide conflicting parts and directions regarding the SCSI ID select jumpers/wires. Where can I find a website that explains this in simple language for those of us who grew up before computers? Thanks.

This should be fairly easy, usually there is a chart on top of the drive showing what jumper corresponds to which ID location, just check the chart and jumper accordingly. If it is not printed on the drive, check the instructions or get on the mfr's website for the chart.

As you may know, all you really have to do is make sure they are not set to the same i.d.. This may be as easy as removing the i.d. jumper from one drive (usually no jumpers means id=0), assuming there are no other drives on the scsi chain.

Try this .pdf.

Just check the model number and see if it matches the ones listed at the top. If not search for the model number you have on seagate's site. My guess is the scsi id block will be the same either way.

***********************************

neither, the Genex GX9000 DSD / PCM recorder

and I already have the Seagate directions, but they appear to conflict with the Storcase directions and both refer to the "computer's" directions and I don't have a manual for the recorder yet.
