    I have an Adaptec 1522A which is an ISA SCSI card. I want to use it in an AMD
    motherboard with a K6/500 processor under Windows XP.
    I can't find a driver for it for Windows XP and if I use the XP built in driver it says
    it can't set resources. Is that normal or does it suggest the card is not working?
    How can I set resources for this card, by looking at the links on the card?
    Any suggestions?
    I want to use it with a 4 mm SCSI DAT tape drive.

    Does the card appear properly in the Device Manager? That message may be
    because the card isn't isapnp.

    As you see there are no winxp drivers, not sure whether NT driver might do
    I doubt any default winxp driver would work

    You are right. It is not pnp. I had to tell Windows XP to install the driver and set
    the resources manually. Having done that it is now working.
