Windows 7 and SCSI Tape Drive
Posted on 2013-06-11
Trying to get this to work for a client.
Win 7 Pro, 64 bit.
Adaptec SCSI Card 29320 LPE PCI-express card (Ultra 320)
Tandberg 3505-LTO Drive
Win 7 sees the SCSI card (under storage controllers) but the tape drive is not listed anywhere.
There is power to the tape drive (power light is on, pulls in a tape, ejects it)
I have downloaded updated drivers for the drive, but adding devices to Win 7 has been hugely dumbed down from previous versions. You can no longer say "Other device" and choose drivers. You also used to be able to right click on an INF file and choose INSTALL, and that would install the drivers. That comes back with an error.
What else should i be testing and trying to make this work? Does Adaptec have some sort of "SCSI Bus Scanner" Windows GUI that would tell me what is attached?
I will greedily accept any input!
