AIT tape drive won't run


Recommended Posts

Recently upgraded to G4 but still using Mac OS 9. Installed 4.3 and ADK and Updater. Tried more than one cable, more than one tape drive...tried running with my ATTO external drives and tried tape drive connected directly to computer. Tried intalling and uninstalling.

 

The problem: retrospect launches fine...can see the device, but says "busy" or "no media" or "not responding." When tape drive looped off my external drives...it sees them but says "unrecongnized content."

 

What am I missing?

While in Retrospect, go to Configure > Devices > Device Status. List Vendor, Product and Version for your drive.

You've ruled out the cable and the tape drive.

 

 

 

The remaining factors:

 

Terminator

 

SCSI card

 

Computer

 

 

 

Try a different terminator, different card and different computer.

Sony SDX 300C

 

version 0700

 

 

 

Terminator not it....

 

SCSI card may be it... had to update it to update to Medea drives w/ G4

 

so, if that's it, do I put old card in empty slot?...I'll try

 

If its my computer...that's a little general....this tape drive has been successfully used on another computer... with the same software
