SBS 2003 - RD1000 - Backup Fails - "The operation was not performed because the specified media cannot be found."

I just installed a RD1000 into a server, and I can manually write files to the drive.  I have it shared out so I can backup to it.  Permisions are System, Administrator, Backup Operators and are set to full control.

This is the error I get... Any Suggestions?
