  1. Hello All, I was hoping someone could shed some light on an issue I am having little luck with. I have been put in charge of a large database of backups. At the time there was an SCSI based SDX-500c on the shelf labeled broken and another in service (I have been using till now). The one in service slowly died with increasing errors. I had suggested servicing the drives but was discouraged from that as other IT people began lending us their AIT machines. An SDX-500c with a USB enclosure and an SDX-900v with SCSI as well. The only thing that worked to read the tape library was to use the original machine. I stripped off the enclosure and mounted it in a PC with a terminated cable and that has kept us alive. I am now terrified that if this machine dies it will mean all of our tapes are unreadable. I am starting to think I should begin transferring the data on the tapes through another machine. Hopefully creating media that can be read on a more reliable machine. I know tape is a bit finicky and because I am younger I haven't really been exposed to scuzzy beyond hardware IDs and terminators. Is there something critical I have missed? Thanks. EDIT: I have now found that the other Sony SDX-500c is not recognizing tapes possibly due to the contacts in the drive that seat against the back of the tape. I am going to try and swab it I suppose. Couldn't hurt. I am using Retrospect 7.6 for the data sets. No older or newer versions. Thanks! JV
