Re: C7438 Tape USB External Problem with VMWARE 4.1

Have you tried erasing the tape first, or formatting it?   Perhaps if there's another application on the tape, ntbackup is blocked from writing to it without prepping the tape (can also happen with totally new tapes).

 

If the above doesn't work. you could try downloading an eval license of Data Protector Express or ARCserve and see if it is able to use the drive  successfully as a second check.
