SCSI Setup with Windows XP

I have a GA-8KNXP Ultra-64 (gigabyte) motherboard with an IDE drive attached for booting and housing the OS (Windows XP PRO). The MOBO has a built-in SCSI controller, Adaptec's AIC-7902W, which leads to 2 connections. From one of these connections, I have a ULTRA320 SCSI cable attached to an internal/external converter which is attached to a Digital Equipment Corporation SCSI shelf.

After the computer POST's there is an option "Ctrl-A" to enter SCSI setup. Inside this program the drive plugged into the shelf is recognized, can be verified, and formatted. When I load windows and go to disk manager, there is no pop-up regarding a new drive attached to the system. Its as if Windows is not recognizing there is another drive attached.

Is there some setting I have missed, or something I need to switch in Windows?



Sorry about the post, but I have found how to make Windows recognize SCSI - I had to manually go into Add Hardware as it did not recognize it automatically. However, a new problem has happened - The SCS drive is writing slower than my IDE drive! Any suggestions?
