It is not recommended to use a Smart Array controller to access a Tape Drive. Your performance will suffer badly and in some cases you will not even be able to access the drive.

thanks all ...

as i have searched for the support matrix of that card , i have found that it doesn't support connectivity to an external tape drive.
