SubjectRe: 2.4 test10 error reading from HP colorado 7/14 Gb tape
I  reported this a few weeks ago or so, it seems that HP 7/14's are not exactly
standard. First is the proprietory tape size. Second is that the drive doesn't
support locking the tape in, but reports it as possible. At least, that's what i
gather from Jens's posting.

To be honest, I'm not sure the drives are worth fixing <grin> Unreliable media,
unreliable tape drives. I've got two dead out of 10, in under a year. And half a
dozen tapes or so. Plus, under 2.2.17+ide, the tape drive wouldn't restore tapes.
Something weird about the tape drive again. Had to boot up under plain 2.2.17 to
read my tapes.
