To be completely honest, unless there is vital data stored on a tape drive that you absolutely must access, this technology is severely outdated and not worth the hassle of finding the appropriate drivers for Win XP. An CD burner is very very inexpensive, easy to install if there isn't one already (especially external drives). Most computer shops have used CD burners in stock and will sell them basically for pocket change.
Archive Corporation was purchased by Connor Peripherals in 1993 and they don't appear to have Win XP drivers readily available for that model. If you need to test that drive, you will need to couple it with an old computer. Try a functioning computer at a garage sale, seriously. You can probably get one for about $10 WITH a monitor! That's going to be your best bet.
I hope this helps, I know you wanted different news, but at least this is accurate.
what drives are inside as these units can come in several configs. For all SCSI units the Adaptec 29320 is good for fiber the qlogic cards are my prefered cards.
Drivers are available from sun for the library and drives although you can sometimes use the standard windows drivers for many drives. (search for LTO as the tape drive manufacturer in win drivers for LTO) Although best to use sun drivers if at all possible.
Library comes up as a medium changer in device manager.
What backup software are you using? If Backup exec then the latest version already comes with their drivers built in
You don't have to assign the scsi id's on the drives. The L20 does that for you according to whatever you set in the drive config menu.
When you say the system 'forgets' the id's does that mean it saw them initially? Does it lose any particular one or all of them? What's the physical configuration - that is, what devices are on which scsi busses and what are their ID's? Any daisy chaining?
We use a stand alone--single drive and a Jukebox with two drives. Both drives in the Juke box have 15 dips off and the #1 switch closest to the rear, switched on. The Standalone drive has all switches off. Our drives use terminators on the cable connectors on the rear of the drives.
