correct driver for sc44ge / sc08 on ubuntu 12.04.5 lts

Hi i have a couple old G7 servers that we use for backup, we just switched from windows to linux


on our G8 servers we have an H221 and that is working fine with the mpt2sas module, seeing the tape drive,


on our G7 servers with SC44GE and SC08 cards this is not working, i've added mpt2sas and mptsas in /etc/modules but it does not see the tape drive, ubuntu however does see the card when i do a lshw
