ML350 G4 - Windows SBS Server - Backup to USB DAT160

We have a ML350 G4 running Windows SBS 2003 Server and backing up to a HP DAT160 drive via USB.

The NT backups have been failing during the night, after running one during the day I seen that it backs up for a while then the server loses connection to the USB drive and/or port. Looking in Device Manager when this happens the Tape Drive removes itself, the backup fails, then the drive and ports come back.

I split the backup to a smaller amount but it can do it as soon as the backup starts.

The backup is running off the USB 2.0 ports.

Anyone had this before?
