HP Colorado 5 gb external tape with Windows XP

I'm using my 5 gb external Colorado tape drive on a Win 98 SE machine. I was looking for drivers, patches, etc. to see if I can use the drive on a PC with Windows XP and couldn't find any. Does that mean the drive won't work with XP or that it works "as is"?

Thanks for the quick response Kathy. The document you referred me to mentions that I will need an updated shuttle port driver. Is epattdw.exe (163.45K) the one that I would use?

Hi again Terry,

Yes, I believe that's the correct driver update you need.

Good luck!
