It has been a very long time since I used one of these so I just can't remember everything. I have an adaptec 2906 scsi, and the scanner cable. What I did was inserted the card into the MB, and the cable to the scsi card and scanner. I was hoping that it would show up in the device manager with a question mark and that windows would be able to find a generic driver, but no such luck. If needs be, I could always buy a cheap computer with windows XP, but it would be nice if I could get it to work on Windows 7. I hope that what I wrote is understandable, and any help would be appreciated.
Works now with an adaptec card AVA 2903B + Epson Perfection 1200S + Vuescan from Hamrick software under win 10. I installed the driver Unsigned driver for Adaptec AHA-29xx cards . After restart with switched on scanner the scanner works well.
I am having issues installing an adaptec aha-2940u/uw card into my windows 10 x64 pc. Windows does not detect it as a scsi card at all, and when I try to install the 29xx drivers on the detected device, it adds the microsoft storage spaces device, and the adaptec drivers is installed with an error.
It is printed on the card as AHA-2940W/AHA-2940UW, there is a sticker on the adaptec chip that shows AHA-2940UW/DELL2. I finally figured out what was going on. The first few times I booted the computer, the SCSI card was not being recognized in BIOS. After a few shut downs, it finally started showing the Adaptec pre-boot setup, so I went into the menu, and enabled the PnP option. It then showed up in windows and your driver installed ok. I am able to read MO disks. (My previous troubleshooting led me to do a fresh windows 7 install, which is when the card started showing the pre-boot menu, it installed ok in Win 7. After that I did a fresh install of Win 10, and it is working in that, too!) Thank you very much for this post and your response!
Odd, I just tested the 320 driver again on my windows 10 pc (did a clean install a few months ago). I downloaded the driver, ran the .exe and it placed the drivers in c:\adaptec\scsi.I was able to select the card in device manager and update/install the driver (selecting c:\adaptec\scsi as the source folder), and Windows 10 recognized the card.
Hi,I need your help guyz as I just want to connect a vintage sampler to my computer running windows 10 64bits, (i used to have an adaptec 2904 running under win xp before my old computer crashed).Can somebody recommend me a scsi card ?Any help appreciated.Thanx and have a nice WE!JP
However, to get it working ive had to use an older computer with a PCI slot to fit the scsi adapter card (an ava 2904e). I would like to use this card on my main computer and bypass the need for an older system. the driver you supplied works with the card in windows 10 just fine.
If the driver listed is not the right version or operating system, search our driver archive for the correct version. Enter Adaptec SCSI Card 2906 into the search box above and then submit. In the results, choose the best match for your PC and operating system.
"I left Adaptec78XXSCSI.kext as the only SCSI Adaptec driver (had the newest date) and that restored my 2906 card and scanner. Also now when I look in system profiler, I see one UMAX Scanner in the Parallel SCSI device tree not multiples I had seen before."
This option requires basic OS understanding.Select Your Operating System, download zipped files, and then proceed tomanually install them.Recommended if Adaptec Scsi Card 2906 is the only driver on your PC you wish to update.
This option requires no OS understanding.Automatically scans your PC for the specific required version of Adaptec Scsi Card 2906 + all other outdated drivers, and installs them all at once. 2b1af7f3a8
