I presume the SCSI bus is properly terminated in BOTH ends, but not
in the middle.....

It looks like the Conner 'told' the Adaptec that it could run
Sync/Disconnect and it can't. This is a common problem with Conners.

In the Adptec BIOS menu, turn OFF disconnect for this drive and
see if it fixes it. If not, turn OFF synchronous negotiation.
