Iomega Rev not recognized by MS Backup

Recently I installed an Iomega Rev backup drive on a Windows 2000 server. The Iomega backup software takes up system resources like hell, and I would like to try out MS Backup as an alternative. The problem is that MS Backup doesn't recognize the drive. It reports it is not a valid drive, or that MS Backup does not have access. Other programs can save and access without any problem. What's causing this? Can I authorize it somehow?

Hi grexx,

Quote from the Iomega website.
Note: The ntbackup.exe utility included with Windows 2000 Pro, 2000 Server and 2000 Advanced Server is not compatible with Iomega REV drives.
