Travan tape suddelnly not recognized in Seagate drive on XP
Posted on 2003-03-24
I've been using XP Professional for 4 months, installed a Seagate STT8000A Travan drive that had worked well in Windows 2000, made several sets of tapes flawlessly in XP and then suddenly...the drive was recognized by XP but it would not recognize any pre-existing tapes or any new tapes (from different manufacturers). I am using the built-in Windows XP Backup program, so I cannot uninstall and reinstall it, to the best of my knowledge... What happened? And more to the point, how can I fix it? My Google and Microsoft searches have been unrevealing...
