Iomega Ditto 2GB Internal Tape Drive Install

I have an IOMEGA Ditto 2GB Internal Tape drive, that will
not install on my ACER Power 486/DX2 66Mhz / 40MB RAM/
2.1 GB HDD/ pc.
I have purchased the recommended IOMEGA accellerator card,
to no avail.
My 2GB drive does not work with the card, and I have juggled
the jumper settings on the accellerator card.
When I connect it directly to the 3.5" floppy, my pc thinks
that the new drive is a 5.25" floppy drive, and I get the
error - "Tape not formatted....(see Iomega site for the
remainder of this error message) "
What can I do. I've had this thing inoperable for so long,
I've gotten the $50.00 rebate from IOMEGA already, and the drive is still not working.

If I understand well, the drive is plugged on the floppy ribbon cable with an extension, right? If so, unplug the floppy drives, remove them from the BIOS settings, and try again.
Feed me back on this please.
