I just installed a Adaptec SCSI card 29160N - Ultra 160 and connected ARCHIVE Python 06240 4mm tape device.  On boot (Windows Vista), I get "Insufficient Termination was detected on the Fast/SE devices".  I see the Adaptec controler and Archive tape drive in the Device manager, but the tape device doesn't show in My Computer or when I try a windows backup. Also, whenever I put a tape in the tape drive, it immediately ejects it.

I have the "term power" jumper set on the internal tape device, and a terminator plugged into the card's external scsi connector.

What does the message mean and why doesn't windows backup see my device?
