When I attempt to backup onto an internal SCSI HP tape drive, it never makes it thru the backup process, either stalling or reporting errors. It is a HP354070A, any directions would be appreciated.  I'm using the Colorado Backup program "CB for Win 95 & DOS" on a P2 266 system.

What are the errors that it reports, this can be very important in helping you.  Also what Scsi controller are you using?  Any other device hanging from the scsi bus?

Enter the error number press Search ISG.  You should get a description of what the error means.  I can't try it now for you as the HP server is encountering problems, but you can now or soon

The backup worked in subsequent trials today on small folders.  I was wondering if it could be related to the failure I get when I attempt the surface test in ScanDisk.  That disk is a HPC3323-300, it fails after a short run, in a sismilar fashion to the tape drive.
