Hi Pesch,

Can you please provide your full system details, i.e. platform, O/S and O/S revision no. (what is the latest service pack installed).

Also did you install backupexec after installing the tape drive?

If so, try exiting the application, then power cycle the drive and then restart the app and see if the drive is recognised.

If that doesn't work, try re-starting backupexec service via the computer management GUI service.

Hi,
Try to reinstall the backup exec. While installing it will prompt you for "whether to use windows driver for tape drive or install backup exec driver" Select Backup exec driver.

We have tried this method & it worked fine. But it was an ultrium 1 ( HP 230) drive. Same method should work in your case also.

Hope these informations will help you.

Regards,

Shameer

Try upgrading the firmware on the tape drive and re-install backup exec. I am doing this right now, see what happens.

Aloha!

Yes! It looks like it worked!
So flash the firmware on the tapedrive, then re-install the Backup Exec. It should be there.

I'm using Backup Exec 10 with windows 2003 SP1 and an extertal usb dat 72. I've tried installing the last service pack (sp 4), and still does'n work, Backup Exec can't see the Dat.
It has the last firmware.
Any suggestion?
