Ive just bought an old sony dat drive SDT-5000 and want to use the external housing frome one I already have. Does anyone know how to set the jumpers? I can supply an image of this if it helps


supply an image (and would be great if you could supply image from old broken one and new one)

I'm a bit confused though: if you have an internal working sdt-5000 that you want to put into an external broken sdt-5000, it should be as simple as getting the enclosure open, then swapping the internal drives; i.e. external enclosures usually still use the same spec internal drive so it would just be an ide or scsi connector cable.

How to use the superstation 10gb with XP? Can you use this tape backup with XP?


Sony does not support this configuration, the last OS they supported for this is Win 98. It is doubtful that any of the generic drivers that come with XP will work with the drive.

Tar /dev/st0 can't write: error


Sounds like your tape drive or possibly the tape you are using is faulty.
check the following:
#1 - use a different tape
#2 - check that the read-only is not enabled on the tape(s)
#3 - run diagnostics on the drive (if it's come with software for diagnostics).
#4 - return it to the supplier to test and replace if under warranty.

DDS-5 not compatible with windows 2008


I am pretty sure that the driver should be compatible with win08.

If you are using backup exec then try switching to use symantec drivers for your tape drive (setting withing BUEX)

If it is just the tape that cant be read or identified and was backed up using windows backup then try restoring the backup on a 2003 server and then copying the data across the network.

Unlocked tapes recognized as locked


this is probably due to a stuck microswitch in the tape drive unit as the locked tag presses a microswitch when loaded it is possibly these microswitches that are failing, as one of the switches detects if a tape is loaded and the other detects is a tape is locked, so problems with these switches would mean that it cannot detect if the tape is loaded properly.
