Question about Seagate STT320000A Travan Tape Drive

Open Question

Seagate Travan backup gives error code "333 Unexpected bus free".

Backup unit was installed in a new computer and was working fine. After about a week it started with a "hard tape error"; 1st on the Thursday tape- changed tape, seemed to remedy it. But now it is giving the above error code on the last 2 consecutive daily backup atempts. This is backing up 1 unit on a network. No other units are accessing the network while this is backing up. I do not know what the error message means. Thanks for your help; this is my "server" for my small office network and it of course is imperative that I back it up daily, reliably. I look forward to your help. Note I am using all new tapes.

I have a Seagate Tapestor 20GB tape drive. I have upgraded to a XP driver but the software does not recognize the tape media to do a backup.


Try to use a cleaning cartridge. If the tape drive is still not recognizing the tape media after you clean it then your heads are bad

I have an old STT6201U tape drive from Seagate that I'm trying to install on Windows XP. Windows asks for a driver for a "Freecom USB-Atapi Controller" but I cant find one anywhere. Does anybody know where...


Hi Richard, I found a free download site for the driver that your Win XP is searching for. I am unsure of the format and installation process. But I do hope that this link will help you.

Good Luck!

Seagate STT63200P Win XP Driver


I would suggest you have to put it on a Windows 95 computer as I have a unit and the Driver should go with a windows 95 just to get your data.

Backup software for certance travan 40?


Hi,

You will have to load a driver for the Travan drive, if windows server 2000 sees the tap drive you could use NTbackup.exe to configure a back-up here is a link to read more about it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/237310/

Installed identical replacement STT320000A but won't recognize tape


The STT320000A is IBM version? some IBM version STT320000A will rewind the tape when inserted. But It can recognize the media after rewind. If can't, try to used the cleaning cartridge or change one new media. regards

Most tape drivers are loaded from withing the backup software. Symantec and CA work like this. I'd start there.

If not you have to start the remote storage service and check in device manager to see what it defaults to and see if will find the device for you.

Backup starts before the scheduled time


Check the system time in the system BIOS, by hitting one of the Function keys. If this is not it, then make sure the time, date, and time zone are set correctly on the desktop.
