content unrecognized / old tapes

Recommended Posts

I am pretty certain that this is a *SOFTWARE* issue. (I have cleaned the heads, shuffled the scsi chain, changed the power supply, refurbished the drive, etc. the list goes on and becomes rather embarrassing after a while).




All of my old tapes come up as "content unrecognized." Even the ones that were backed up on the same computer... I have upgraded to 9.2 (from 9.1 and older versions) but on other systems running 9.2, the tapes are recognized and work. I have tried turning off all the extensions that are unneccesary and I have upgraded to latest version of retrospect (5.0.201). Still unrecognized. Am I missing a driver? Is it something with the advanced driver kit? HELP!
