SCSI External Backup tape not detected at startup
Posted on 2006-04-19
Hi, I have a Certance external tape drive STD6401LW (seems to be a standard model number with a few companies , HP, Seagate, etc). I've got two machines, and neither seem to be detecting the drive at startup (its terminated externally). Am I wrong in thinking that I should at least see something at startup on the SCSI bus (just like if I had a hard disc attaced)? Card is Adaptec. I've tried it on two different machines and neither have them pop up on the bios screen.
