I have a SCSI HD attached to my PC, but its disabled. In the disabled state I attach my Akai sampler to it, format it, and save samples there.

Before, when diskToFile (an imaging program) worked, I could disconnect my AKAI, enable the SCSI HD, and use the PC to create an image file on my PC's IDE of the Akai formatted SCSI drive including all the samples.

Since XP, DiskToFile returns an "unspecified Host Adaptor Error"....fine, there MUST be an XP compatible program to make an image file of my SCSI HD.

Then I could use my CD Burning program to burn that image to a CD.

Then I could take my Akai sampler to gigs and load the samples with a CD drive and the one CD rather than bunches of floppy disks.

At the moment, I can't even get XP to "show" the disk in the explorer. I've used "Disk Management", but unless I format the damn thing for PC (thereby losing all my AKAI samples) it won't show up. :thumbsup:

So the question is, how can I write the image of the Akai formatted SCSI HD to a file, and then the file to a CD?

I think the main question is how do you get the hard drive to be seen by xp. Have you installed the proper drivers for your scsi card?

This is an external SCSI drive is it? What does an Akai sampler do and what does it format the drive as e.g. Fat32, NTFS, Fat16?
