Re: dds4 on k580

Why you don't want to believe me?

Read your old thread again:

Again:
the tape2 driver is the only one for the SCSI adapter, but this driver *CANNOT* work with the DDS4 drive, because he don't know how to handle.
Yes, the device will be CLAIMED, but the controller (driver) "can't speak the right language". No workaround unless the one given in the other post.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
