Quantum DLT8000 Drivers not installing properly

Something strange going on with the installation of the drivers on my DLT8000. I'm able to use the xTalk program to run tests and stuff on the tape drive from windows so I know it's working properly. However, this is what the device manager says:

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

and it shows the little red exclamation point. Getting to this spot was difficult because of some issue with the INF file which (I guess) I was able to fix via this blog post:

http://www.loosewireblog.com/2006/07/how_to_fix_a_br.html

I added the [ClassInstall32] to the very end of the INF file that came with the downloaded drivers from the Quantum website. I was able to determine that the key name for this type of device is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{6D807884-7D21-11CF-801C-08002BE10318}

and sure enough, there is a subkey 0000 which contains all the info about my tape drive.

This is what my setupapi.log file is showing:

SOURCE: Quantum superloader not showing in windows device manager

First off, I have to say that I have had nightmares with Quantum tape libraries. It is possible that they are still manufacturing lemons. I had one replaced 4-times and it still did not work!

Start troubleshooting by making sure that it is identified by the controller card it is connected to. You should see this during the server POST before Windows starts. If you don't see it there then Windows definitely won't see it. Send it to Quantum for service.

If the controller sees it then make sure that you are using the Backup Exec drivers. Never use the manufacturer's drivers with Backup Exec. Veritas, now Symantec, has a downloadable utility called the Device Driver Installation Wizard that will make sure you have the correct driver loaded.

I hope this helps.
