Quantum DLT-V4 SATA + Promise TX2+ - The device, \Device\Scsi\ulsata21, did not respond within the timeout period.

Last Modified: 2008-10-03
I have SBS 2003 (Windows Server 2003) and I'm using NTBACKUP to a Quantum DLT-V4 SATA drive attached to a Promise TX2 SATA controller.  The backup starts, runs for about 8Mb and then stops, after about 15 minutes this event is recorded in the event log: The device, \Device\Scsi\ulsata21, did not respond within the timeout period. and the backup fails.

It has the latest drivers, and the diagnostics for the card and drive all show no problems.
