C5685A Internal DDS-4 on AIX 4.3.3.

Hi all,

We are trying to install a HP DDS-4 (C5685A) on a UNIX system runnign AIX 4.3.3
We've resetup the dip switches as indicated.
AIX reconize the tape as "Other SCSI Tape..."
"backup" command fails randomaly.
"tar" command fails after 18GB.
it seems like no hardware compression is used?!
can any one assist?
