Re: Configure tape drive ?
There can be a number of reasons
- malfunctioning hardware of the tapedrive itself
- damaged scsi-cable (check the connectors good)
last year I had a scsi-cable with some pins bended, gave me a lot of
pain-in-the-neck before i found the problem.
- no or defunct scsi-terminator.
- duplicate scsi-selector
I noticed that your connor drive uses scsi-id 4, which is often used for
the tape drive......
Kind regards, SDHans
