I installed a new internal Sony Tape Drive on a new PC using XP pro connected via SATA Cable. The drive is not displayed in Windows Explorer or Retrospect but shows up in Device Manager as working properly.
I have bought an USB-SATA adaptor with the same result.
I have to mention that in order to install XP on the Intel G33BUC Motherboard I had to change in BIOS the Drive from SATA to IDE, otherwise I received the blue screen with a Harddrive error. Unfortunately the PC is at my Customer Office and I won't be able to access it over the weekend.
Any recommendations are welcomed as I need to get this backup working.
