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.

Hello. Can you please tell me whether the Freecom DDS4 40Gb DAT drive will read DDS-2 tapes. I don't need to write to them, just retrieve data. Thanks.

Tape drives are usually backwards compatible in as much as you should be able to access data from an older format; so it wouldn't do any harm to try it and see. Regards, nicam49
