OSR2 and Tapedrives

We have a Shuttle DAT recorder that worked fine with the 'previous' version of Windows 95. You installed the Parallel to SCSI driver and then it recognized a Generic Tape drive and it worked.

But in the OSR2 there is no Generic Tape driver. It recognizes a SCSI device but can't find a driver for it. Does anybody know how to proceed?

The tape drive is an Archive Python 28388. I couldn't find a suitable driver yet.

Heres and answer i got from a senior fellow;

Your drive is almost certainly not being recognized as a DAT drive anymore. You need to edit /var/sysgen/master.d/scsi to create an entry for the 28388. Search for "Python 25601" and copy
that entry or the "Python 01931" entry as appropriate and change
the model number. Save that, autoconfig, and reboot.

Still looking fo drivers
