Hi,

yes you will need to load the driver for that DAT drive, you will also need to load the software that will allow you to backup and or store data on the tape .

Trying to install a DAT Tape in a Gateway GR380


It is just a matter of connecting it and loading the device driver. It is better to install it on its own bus rather than sharing it with a hard drive.

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.
