Unable to use installed tape drive in Backup Exec
Posted on 2008-10-17
Tape drive is Seagate STT2000A USB, for an old small server. Original internal tape drive stop reading tapes a few weeks back so I purchased a replacement. When I goto Wizards -> Device Wizard, and look at existing tape drives, I see the one that can no longer read, but not mine. I hit configure devices, and then goto the windows removable storage snap-in and I can see my drive, next to the now dead one, installed fine and no red X's. Tape drive shows up under computer management and drive in installed fine. However no matter what I try, I can't get backup-exec to agree to use the tape drive. Everything seems in place that I would need to use it, and backup exec installed the other useless drive fine. Any ideas?
