My head is bloody from banging it against the keyboard! Here's the situation: The hubby and I bought a Roland VS1680 (digital recording studio) that came with it's own external CD-R/RW, and we can burn audio we've created on the Roland to the CD-R/RW just fine. So...since it's a SCSI device (and came with Adaptec software such as Direct CD and Easy-CD Creator) I bought an Adaptec 2940UW card for my pc (Win 98), plus a cable. Windows recognizes the SCSI card just fine, no problem. What I cannot get it to do is get beyond the SCSI card and recognize that there is a CD burner at the other end of the cable attached to the SCSI card. Am I totally ignorant, or shouldn't I be able to get my PC to recognize this additional CD drive (burner)? Did I buy a SCSI card for no reason? How do I get my PC to interact/read the burner? I'm so confused! (A lot more difficult than installing a USB port - and I was so proud when I figured THAT out!).

Any help would be HUGELY appreciated.
