Have an old Iomega Ditto tape drive Easy 800 and Ditto Tools software for Windows and Windows 95. Want to move data from old tapes onto Vista Op Sys and then onto a CD. Will this old software install on...

Is it possible to find an old computer running an old version of Windows, and then to connect the tape-drive to that computer, and then to copy the files onto a folder on that computer?

Then, if that computer has a network-card, you can "share" that folder, so that all computers on your network can then access that "shared" folder, i.e., to copy the files, and then to burn them to a CD-recordable.

The driver for this Archive > Seagate > Certance > and finally Quantum drive was included in Windows. Try Window Device Manager > select the drive > properties > update driver > Can Windows Update select No not at this time > Install from a list... > Don't Search...> Tape Drive > try either the Standard tape drives DAT driver or a Compaq DAT. If none of those work you are probably out of luck.

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.
