Compaq DDS4 20/40 GB DAT Drive does not recognize HP DDS2. Any suggestion?

Re: Compaq

Hi,

Can you be more specific about which tape drive you're using...?

A DDS-4 drive should be able to read and write a DDS-2 tape, but certain models won't.

For example, the hot plug StorageWorks 20/40 drive can only read a DDS-2 tape, not write onto it.

Cheers,
