Iomega REV drive appears as a CD drive to the OS

I have a Dell PowerEdge SC430 with Windows Server 2003 installed. I installed a REV 70 internal IDE drive and loaded the drivers and utilities for it. The OS treats it as a read-only CD drive. The Iomega format utility fails if I try to format a REV disk. Disks with something on them can be seen, but I can't copy anything to the drive.

Hi,
Have you tried downloading updated drives from the Iomega site?

Best,

I downloaded and installed the latest iomega REV system software and flashed the drive firmware, as well. After a restart, that did the trick.
