I have a problem with BaschupAssist when ever I run it I get this error:
The requested media failed to mount. The operation was aborted.

The interesting thing is I have no problems running Windows 2003 ntbackup, with the same media. I have tried this on several tapes and they all get this error. This is running on a Sony ATI 50 GB SCIS drive.

Any ideas why BackupAssist can not mount a tape that ntbackup can?

The BackupAssist Hardware compatability list shows that drive is supported.

You should read this FAQ on setting up tapes for BackupAssist first and see if it helps:

If that fails, post a question for the BackupAssist forum.
