To mount a MSDos-formatted Syquest on Amiga, you need with an (DOSen) Adaptec-Controller the following Mount-entry in `DEVS:Mountlist': If your medium does have more than one partition, you need to copy the following Mount-Entry for every partition and give each partition another name (eg. SyC:, SyD:, SyE:, etc.) You don't need to change LowCyl and HighCyl for each partition; CrossDOSFileSystem does that automatically.
SyC: /* SyD:, SyE:, etc. */ Filesystem = L:CrossDOSFileSystem Device = scsi.device Unit = 2 Flags = 1 Surfaces = 1 BlocksPerTrack = 1 BlockSize = 512 Reserved = 1 Interleave = 0 LowCyl = 0 HighCyl = 524287 Buffers = 128 BufMemType = 0 Stacksize = 4000 Priority = 5 GlobVec = -1 DosType = 0x4D534800 Activate = 1 #
For different (DOSen) controllers this entry should work, too, but maybe you have to adjust it. When inserted, the Syquest-270MB medium is (in this case) automatically mounted (as drive SyC:) and can be used with help of the CrossDOS-Filesystem as usual.
