SubjectRe: problem with hp C1537A tape drives

Hello Paul , Is the tape drive the only drive on that controller ?

- If it is the only drive then , I have just one suggestion
-verify- all cables are seated correctly & -verify- that there
is proper termination on the bus .

- If it is Not the only drive then ,
Try grabbing an pci scsi card of known goodness & place the tape
drive on that all by itself (just as a test) , making sure of
proper termination .
If that works then reveiw the configurations of the other
drives/tapes/... that are on the bus causing problems .
