usbxchange & sure store tape

A Sure Store Tape 5000 (HP35480A to speak HP tech !) has been working fine for years (Win3.11, Win95, WIN98 with Adaptec AH1-294X Scsi adaptator) ...

When I buy an Adaptec USBxChange cable to connect the device to my notebook, the device seems correctly WIN98-installed but Colorado does not find the inserted tapes ("No tape" message) and consequently does not back up or restore any more.

Does it mean the Sure Store Tape does not work with USBxChange cable or does somebody know the special prerequisites for such a modern use of the HP35480A ?

Thanks for your comments in advance,
