That's just not correct what they say. Why I say it with so great confidence ? Simply because I used internal ACSI/SCSI adapter and external UltraSatan at once. And I wrote driver SW for it. All goes via "ACSI/SCSI bridge card" - ah, even that's not correct. That's called adapter, not bridge normally in Atari waters. Maybe some PC motherboard influence ?
So, it is actually 3 SCSI IDs at once - internal adapter's ID is what is set with DIP switches in Mega STE. And UltraSatan has 2 IDs for 2 card slots. That makes 3
Looking case when internal adapter is removed - then you need 8 jumpers that ACSI external conn work:
Or some simple adapter what will connect those pins - may be not directly, but via line transceviers. Solution is to do same as Lotharek did with UltraSatan - special adapter for internal connection.
I don't have CosmosEx, so I was not able it on my Mega STE. It may be that it really works not well with Mega STE. But then, the reason, explanation is something other.
Correct answer would be this: you can use CosmosEx as internal hard disk in Mega STE - in 2 ways:
1. Removing internal adapter and hard disk and using special adapter like it is done for UltraSatan.
2. Keeping internal drive and disk inside - then it is little harder, but possible to connect to lines which lead to external ACSI port.
Of course, need to set different IDs for all 3 targets .
