Hello,
We have a computer running Small Business Server 2000. Installed on the computer is an AP-40 SCSI card. There is a Wang DAT Tape drive attached to the SCSI card. The problem is, SBS2000 detects the SCSI card but it doesn't detect the tape drive attached to the card. Does anyone know how I can get the tape drive working?

Thanks in advance,
Jenn

Does the DAT drive come with a setup disk?  If so, run the setup program.  Sometimes loading the drivers for a device will cause Windows to detect the device.

Check the termination on the drive, it may have a small switch or jumper to set the termination to enabled.  Was there another device connected behind the DAT drive?  Many tape drives won't show up in Device Manager at all, they only appear when you actually get into the backup software.

Is the DAT drive terminated?  Are there any "unknown" devices in your device manager?

1. The SCSI ID setting must be set(some via jumpers but some are automatic).
2. The SCSI device must be properly terminated(active is better than passive).
3. check quality/integrity of SCSI cable.
