Have you installed Library and tape tools.

What is the result of the diagnostic test?

Have you updated the Rom and SCSI controller?

Anything in the eventlog?
Chaos, Panic or Disaster??? Always Stay Calm, I will fix it.

thanks for your replay
yes i have installed and i can´t do it because cleaning cartridge is there and can´t read or write.

i will install the new psp with the new drive when it comes.
the event log of windows say that is a bad block on the cartridge.
since have a problem with backup, support tell me to update firmware of DLT to v064.after that the problem is worst.( The new drive come with V064 to).

must update rom and driver for scsi mainboard?
if i must why they don´t tell me that?
i ask and the answer is if i wont, no need to do that !????????

well, they are on adesk and not on field!!! Can´t feel the problem and i understand.
one more time thanks for your help
