Alpha Server 800 5/500 - DAT Drive Problem

Hi

WE had to replace the DAT-Drive in this Alpha-Server. We now have a "compaq 20/40GB DAT"-Drive. But the Server won't recognize this Drive.
Can anyone tell me, if there's a incompability? Or can i check this somewhere on the Internet?

Thanks for any suggestions...

You could need a firmware upgrade.

Is the tape invisible from the SRM console or from the bootet OS?

Thanks for the replies.

The Problem is solved, this Tape really was incompatible with this Alphaserver.

Thanks again
