I have a IBM LTO3 400/800GB SAS HH INTERNAL TAPE DRIVE 23R7036 which I have installed on a IBM X3200 M3 Server.  For some reason it won't recognise the tape drive. I have cross checked the cables etc. Its all OK.

That tape drive is the newer model of supported drives listed for the X3200 M3 ( http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/xbc/cog/x3200m3_7327/x3200m3_7327to.html ) so the odds are the SAS port needs to be enabled in the BIOS or you need to install the tape drive's drivers. Here is the manual which tells you how to get them: http://download.boulder.ibm.com/ibmdl/pub/systems/support/system_x_pdf/60y1483.pdf
