Here is the background info:
So i just got this thing off this dude on Ebay, met the dude, tested the machine...mint perfect great. etc.
Came with an external CDRW drive, an internal ZIP, and an external Jaz (sp?) drive.
I was messing around with it 2 days ago and decided to try to hook up the CDRW to my PC so I could burn a CD. I dissconnected it from the MPC, and found out that it wasnt gonna work on the PC, and then reconnected it back to the MPC. BUT, now it says "no SCSI Device!!". It was working just fine a minute ago, and now it says this mess. I try the Jaz drive, which has a different cable, and same thing. I read up on some stuff at www.mpc2000xl.com that the machine could blow a fuse if the ScSI Cable is taken out while the machine is on. I called AKAI and they said that this is usually a problem on the MPC2000 but NOT the XL. So what the heck is going on? It wont read from my CDROM or my Jaz Drive PERIOD. It always says "no SCSI device!!" when I hit load. I have went through all the SCSI's, 0-9 and nothing. I dont know what to do....take it to the shop? $65.00 an hour. Please, if anyone has any advice, I would love to hear it. Thanks,
