Tape drive on USB port of c3000 OA module

Ramu needed a tape drive for a c3000 customer:






Can we connect USB tape drive on the USB port of c3000 OA module?.


C3000 Installation guide states "A USB 2.0 Type A connector that connects supported USB devices" to the USB port. Does that mean Tape drive can be connected?.


We are proposing c3000 for a large requirement where no free slots for tape blade available. c7000 does not qualify due to rack space limitation.


Appreciate fast response.

Howdy, no a tapedrive is not qualified as US attached device. Only mouse, keyboard and flashdrive.




Have you tried one that works? Let us know.
