Re: 1702 cable error

Roy,
did you try another cable? Did you check that tape and host's interfaces are compatible (do NOT connect HVD devices to LVD/SE controllers and vice versa). Do NOT connect tapes to RAID controllers - use addon ones with correct interface

Re: 1702 cable error

thanks for the response. as it turns out the problem is that the external scsi port will not work when the internal #1 scsi port has a cable in it (?). i just unplugged the cable going to that port and it worked. go figure..
