Compaq DLT35/70 problem

I'm unable to make my internal Compaq 35/70Gb DLT drive work properly.
I took it from a brand new Proliant ML530 and built it into a Proliant 1850R. I connected it to the internal SCSI port of the machine. The OS is Winnt4, SP6. I also upgraded the firmware of the drive and installed the latest NT tape drivers from Compaq. Still, tests fail and if I use it in NTBackup I only see "bad tapes".

Any ideas, I ran out of them.

Re: Compaq DLT35/70 problem

Is there anything else on that controller? Have you tried testing the drive in Server Diagnostics (F10 setup partition)?
