Chris, this link http://www.hp.com/cposupport/information_storage/support_doc/lpg50063.html will be extremely useful for you :o)
But think about future when you may wish to use LTO-460 drives... So maybe it's good idea to invest a little more and buy Adaptec 29160 SCSI adapter?
Good luck!

It will be used in a old P2 400mhz workstation, and the dat24 is the only scsi device in the PC.

Re: HP DAT 24

Hello,

The cheapest ones are those who rely on the SCSI firmware in the BIOS of the PCs.

Check whether your PC has this by looking in the BIOS menu. If your BIOS has this feature, you have to enable it so that you can use such SCSI HBAs. Tekram makes some SE SCSI ones which are very cheap.

HTH,
Vince
Tape Drives RULE!!!
