The latest drivers are dated 8 September 2004  - can you check that you are running the latest drivers please?

The other thing to do is to run Sony's Tape Utilities from http://sony.storagesupport.com/ait/tapeutility_windows.htm to see if the utility can see and access the drive

Can you let us know what the tape utilities report please?
