Question about Sony SDX-500V/R (sdx500vr) Tape Drive
Hi, I have a Sony SDX-500V external SCSI Tape Drive and it worked fine a year ago. Since then it was sitting in storage unused and now I went to use it again and it doesnt work anymore.
Nothing changed since then...it was just sitting in the back. It powers on and everything but it just isnt recognized by the BIOS anymore. I've tried a couple of different SCSI cards.
Hello! Try to change one SCSI cable. perhaps the connector was oxidized
