Can anyone force windows 7 X64 to accept Adaptec AHA-2940 SCSI card?

    Question

  • Adaptec 2940 had 64 bit drivers for 2003 server and xp X64 and can run in emulation mode using aic78xx.sys in x86 windows7.
    Is it at all possible to get this card to install for use in windows 7 x64??

    There are a lot of people out here in "never" land that would like to know this answer  .  particularly if you can describe how to do this ...

    Cheers

  • If you can find someone with a Vista x64 system there is an "Adaptec AIC-7870 PCI SCSI Controller (Emulated)" driver in the Driver Store on that system that will work with Windows 7 for a AHA-2940 card. For some reason, that driver was dropped from the in-box drivers in Windows 7.

    It is located in the C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\djsvs.inf_6451fbc2 folder. Copy that djsvs.inf_6451fbc2 folder to your Windows 7 computer.

    To install it, go to Device Manager, select your SCSI adapter, right click and choose Update Driver Software. In the Window that appears choose "Browse my computer for driver software". In the next window, enter the location of the djsvs.inf_6451fbc2 folder on your computer, then click Next. You will get warnings about the driver being unsigned and that it may not work. Say yes, you really do want to install the driver -- it will work.

  • I tried your suggestion and it does not work.  Windows 7 Ulimate x64 didn't even recognize the folder as containing SCSI drivers.
      I took the folder off of a Vista Ultmate x64 machine.

  • I found the above worked, and just to help those out there, here is a forum with someone who has shared the Vista x64 driver, it worked for me today (2nd Oct 2010).

  • Didn't work for me. Can you confirm the content of the djsvs.inf_6451fbc2 folder?

    On the download, there are three files.

    thanks

  • Don't feel bad Phil!  I had a little trouble getting it to work too.  I then left the folder on my D: drive and went through the procedure as if I were installing it as a new driver.  When it wants to browse or have you tell it where the folder is located, select that you will choose from the Adaptec selections available in Windows 7.  Then select "I have a disk" and direct it to drive D: or wherever you have the folder stored.  It then installed the driver okay and I am running just fine.  Good Luck and thanks to the person who found this fix.

  • I had been toiling  with an Asus A8N-Sli Deluxe mobo trying to get it to work with my SCSI drives to NO avail. The same 29160 or 39160 Adaptec boards I have that would work on Asus M4A88T-V EVOUSB3 and M4A89TD Pro mobos would not work on the A8N-Sli Deluxe. I xferred the SCSI controller with the cable and terminator as well as initialized drive from the working config to the A8N Sli Deluxe and still nothing. It would recognize the controller but would not initialize the drive. I also had an AHA 2940UW but the Adaptec site didn't have 64 bit drivers for Windows 7 so, I'd almost given up.

    The trick Autopilot7 relates above worked 100% for me. I got the file from the link below:

    http://www.overclock.net/operating-systems/606673-wanted-someone-vista-x64-installed.html

    and followed the instructions as described by Autopilot7 and VOILA, I can see the SCSI drive!

    Many thanks,

  • Just got it to work myself as per EASTON379 / autopilot7's posts; the trick seems to be to bring up the list of Adaptec drivers before clicking on "have disk..." Clicking "I have disk" anywhere else just seems to cause it to reject the driver completely.  Why it works via this one screen I've no idea.

  • A BIG "thank you" to MartinBrav0 for posting the solution. My 2940UW driver is now installed and works.
    Tuesday, June 14, 2011 4:05 PM
  • I have revisited this as others seem to be getting the SCSI cards to work. Firstly, my problem surounds my Epson GT7000S scanner. I have tried your fix above to no avail. I have looked at my SCSI card and it is actualy listed as an AVA-2902E host adapter but the files on the installation CD do not list that model at all, but does include others as well as the AHA-2940. As I have said before, there are only three files in the RAR file for Vista 64 bit, but my CD contains many others (but no DJSVS file).

    I have tried uninstalling the device and then forcing it to use the DJSVS file but it says this does not have any drivers for my device. I have even tried modifying the file as below with no effect. Any further advice would be appreciated. I have also tried loading the AIC 78XX files but the system tells me these are not compatable with my o/s (Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate).

    Windows is showing the card in the Action Centre as an AHA 2940 UW

  • Update - I have found how to force Windows to install the device as Legacy hardware (use Device manager, Action and Add Legacy Hardware). Device manager now shows the SCSI card as an AHA-2940U/AHA-2940UW/AHA-2940D PCI SCSI Controller under storage controllers. it is also showing Adaptec AIC-7870 PCI SCSI Controller (Emulated).

     The DJSVS.inf file shows the text as supplied by MartinBravo.

    It is also showing as a SCSI controller under Other devices with no driver. I have uninstalled this device but Device Manager keeps picking it up as new hardware.

    The forced appearances show the drivers from the DJSVS RAR file (installed to Windows\System 32\Drivers\DJSVS.sys) driver provided by Adaptec version 6.0.0.0 but has the yellow warning triangle and "Code 10 this device will not start"

    So still no success.



    30 July - Success!!!!

    So the SCSI controller has let me install the drivers today, first time round I installed the AHA driver but this did not seem to do anything. I updated this driver to the AIC-7870 driver and my scanner responded with a pre-scan! I have now uninstalled the SCSI Storage Controllers as the "Other Device" is listed as working.

    Nexy problem - EPSCAN does not work with Windows 7 64 bit, so I have downloaded VueScan from http://www.hamrick.com/vsm.html The scanner is now also working!

    I seem to remember the scanner cost around £185 originally, so I would not want to throw it away, and produces better images than my Cannon Lide which is USB powered (bought to carry around with my lap top for familly research).

  • To Phil Harrisson

    I am in the same situation as you were prior to July 30th. What happened between "still no success" and the "success" of July 39th?

    No matter what, I always get "Code 10 this device will not start" and my old Relisys 9624 large transparency scanner does not move!

  • This is a bit jumbled as this site won't let me post the pictures in the order I want.

    First thing I would do is look in device manager, the system kept adding the SCSI card (I think) as a drive controller, the wrong type of device and so cuasing the Code 10. Uninstall it from there. Make sure your scanner is plugged into the SCSI card before you turn your system on (you are probably already doing this) as SCSI devices are not detected if turned on after the system has booted. If the system then asks for the driver, direct it to the location of the AIC-7870 emulated driver. This is what is showing in Device Manager

     

    Saturday, October 08, 2011 3:17 PM
  • I should also have said that after I uninstalled it, I added the device as legacy hardware through Device Manager

    I am in the same situation as you were prior to July 30th. What happened between "still no success" and the "success" of July 39th?

    No matter what, I always get "Code 10 this device will not start" and my old Relisys 9624 large transparency scanner does not move!

    I went a couple of rounds with this before getting things working.

    The AHA-2940 had several generations and each one has its own device ID (the DEV_#### numbers in the .inf file). MartinBravo's additions to the .inf file work for the AHA-2940U/2940UW (DEV_8178), but I have an older AHA-2940/2940W (DEV_7178), so I added these lines to the .inf:

    [ADAPTEC.NTx86]
    %PCI\VEN_9004&DEV_7178.DeviceDesc%  = aic78xx_Inst,  PCI\VEN_9004&DEV_7178
    
    [ADAPTEC.NTamd64]
    %PCI\VEN_9004&DEV_7178.DeviceDesc%  = aic78xx_Inst,  PCI\VEN_9004&DEV_7178
    
    [Strings]
    PCI\VEN_9004&DEV_7178.DeviceDesc="Adaptec AHA-2940/2940W PCI SCSI Controller"

    I got the "Code 10" error on the initial install, but it worked fine after I hooked up/powered on the scanner and rebooted.

    This is on Win7x64 Ultimate, with an Epson Expression 836XL scanner and VueScan, using the Windows 2008 x64 drivers downloaded from http://www.winvistatips.com/adaptec-scsi-adapter-2940-lack-64-bit-drivers-t800611.html. If you happen to have a different version of the card, there's a list of Adaptec PCI device IDs online at http://www.pcidatabase.com/vendor_details.php?id=1306.

    ->

    in the next menu u type between 3 choice...

    REPAIR ........... (look at the link over, its in french but well explained...)

    ...

    then it shows a win 8 menu : "SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS..."

    here u click "ADVANCED OPTIONS...

    on next windows , u should see 5 menu in blue... press "PARAMETERS/preferences/options"... whatever your windows language...

    ...

    ok now, u should see this :

    ..

    your <windows 8 is rebooting........

    =====================

    OK now on this reboot u should see somethin like this :

    u must press key "7" !!! ...

    it says : desactivate drivers signatures.......

    do it !!!

    ...

    VOILà ... THE HARd PART IS FINISHED , now u can safely install (non-signed) drivers of ADAPTEC on windows 8 ...

    -> right click on bottom left... u see a menu ... press "PERIHERICAL DETECTIONS"~~~~~~~~

    u can install the djvqss.inf drivers rightly from this...

    iof u got questions ? i have not.

  • There's a lot of discussion here to this dilemma concerning Windows 7 and a driver for the Adaptec 2940 and I wanted to throw my two cents in just in case someone else finds this in a search for this problem.

    Here's my setup: Windows 7 Pro x64, Adaptec 2940au SCSI to control an Epson scanner GT-10000+. Just upgraded from XP x32 but needed Win 7 x64 for some back up issues I was having with my Home Server 2011. (long story, but all resolved now)

    So anyway, I could never get the Adaptec SCSI driver to install. I started with "Adaptec_Aic_78xx" driver from the Adaptec site that I placed in the "Driver Store" which installed in the "Device Manager" but wouldn't work (code 10). I had also found "Adaptec_7870_and_2906_and_2940_driver_for_Windows_7_-_64_Bit" which I tried to install with the "Update Driver" in the "Device Manager" with no results.

    Then I saw something someone said about using the "Have Disk" in the "Update Driver" in the "Device Manager". I used it and pointed it into my file that I had put into the "Driver Store": "Adaptec_7870_and_2906_and_2940_driver_for_Windows_7_-_64_Bit" and bingo it started loading! It gave me the pop up window about an unsigned driver, which I clicked through and finished the installation. It was recognized in my Hamrick's VueScan too and scanned beautifully!

    So, there was how I got mine going. I hope it works for others trying to get their Adaptec SCSI card going.

  • Heres the step by step for windows 7.

    device manager, update driver, browse my computer for updated driver, let me pick from a list of device driver on my computer, click have disk. browse to the driver in the driver folder. bobs your uncle :)

  • Thank you so much! I can now clear the disks on my old SCSI servers so they can be donated.

  • I would like to thank everyone here for their input
    All of these suggestions will keep 7 running legacy hardware

    Had to cleanup an old SCSI drive today and realized I do not have anything running SCSI anymore....LOL
