Question about HP (Q1998A) AIT Storage Media
Hi, I work for Optus Communications and we recently purchased a number of new Sony AIT2 Turbo tapes (Sony Part Number TAIT2-80C) and have tried to use them in some HP branded AIT2 tape drives, but whenver they are inserted into the drives the tapes are ejected and cannot be initialised.
Is there a fundamental difference between these tapes or is it as simple as HP being diffcult and disallowing use of other manufacturer's tapes in their drives? The paes have a 64 kbyte chip on board (MIC - Memory In Cassette).
We would appreicate any assistance than can be offered as we have purchased quite a few of the these tapes and connot use them.
Thank you. Paul Garratt
It sounds like you have bought the wrong media!
The AIT2 and AIT2 Turbo drives are NOT THE SAME !
for the AIT2 drive (SDX-500C/V SDX-520C/V) you ned the SDX-50C media as the turbo tapes are NOT compatible
If you actually have a turbo drive then you may have a load mech issue in thich case try www.tape-drive-repair for more help as they are good price wise
