Windows 2003 Server Standard locks up accessing tape drive

I have an odd problem on a Windows 2003 Standard Server.

I'm trying to use an IDE Iomega REV35 drive.

Whenever I try to access the drive, it completely locks the server up.  The only thing I can do is hit the reset button.

I tried putting the drive in an external USB Enclosure and still have the same problem.

I have had the drive replaced two times.

I have reloaded the Iomega software also.

I have used the same drive, and cable on a XP Pro machine and it works with no problem.

Is there anything I can check on the server?

The server has an Intel mainboard with a SCSI Controller running mirrored hard drives.

I have contacted IOmega and they suggested replacing the drive, i had it replaced and the first replacement would not work at all, the second is working but still locking up the server.

Thanks,

Patrick

I think it's the software that's causing this.  I'm not sure it's designed for Server 2003.

Is this the server version of the PC version?

This article describes something similar:

You may want to try using it without the Iomega software.  NTBackup in 2003 seems to support this drive.
