I've just installed Win2000 on my machine (fresh install.. no upgrade).  It found everything and installed the drivers... except... my Aiwa SCSI tape drive.

Well, it found it, but it's labeled as an Unknown device.  My problem is that I need to install the QIC-157 tape drivers for it but have no clue where it is on the CD...

So... where are they?

SUMMARY
=======
 
Windows 2000 does not provide support for QIC or other floppy controller-based
tape drives.
 
MORE INFORMATION
================
 
Support for these types of backup devices is removed because the Removable
Storage Manager tool has problems with them. If you have a QIC or floppy
controller-based tape drive, contact the manufacturer to inquire about the
availability of Windows 2000 drivers for your device.

I have found this, so you must see if there are drivers on the website from the manufacturer.

Had to update everyone (who is interested) on this...

I finally got the Aiwa drive to work.. trick was to install the driver by telling Win2K that it was a tape drive, and then selecting the QIC-157 IDE tape drivers....

yep... IDE... go figure...

Not surprised though... the Aiwa drive is a SCSI and it used to use the QIC floppy driver... so now it uses the IDE driver...  ;-)
