New tape drive

I just installed a new tape drive and card and i cannot see the drive. My old tape drive is still visible but the new does not show up. It shows up in the system as installed and working, but the veritals 10.00 can't seem to find it.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for you help.

The printer is seying change cyan catrige

If you did not replace the cyan cart with a new one, the old one is likely empty, too. If it's a new one, take it out, and wipe the contacts off (also, some HP carts have tape across the contacts when new, and you have to remove the tape before installing the cart.)

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.

I replaced my video card and now my screen wont come on... could that b a motherboard issue

  1. Sounds like you forgot to Disable your On-board Video card..
  2. If your video card came with a disk? Get it, if not go to the website, find your product, under support, and download the software, to a CD or Thumb Drive (USB drive)
  3. <Start>, <Restart>, slowly tap the F8 key until You see a list of choices, select Safe mode WITH Networking.
  4. A message will pop up explaining that you are in safe mode and what it means Click<Ok>
  5. <Starrt>, Right Click <Computer>, choose <Manage>
  6. From the left column choose <Device Manager> Scroll to <Display Adapter>
  7. Click the + left of <Display>
You should see 2 Video items, your New Device (Model) and another, <Disable> the old one [DO NOT- DELETE IT], just Right Click and <Disable> you will see a red 'x' on the old device, once it is Disabled..

If your new Device Is Showing, just restart and Enjoy; if it is Not showing in Device Manager, put in your CD or Flash Drive and <Install Drivers> and then <Restart>

Don't Worry: even if your new driver isn't installed, yet you can always still see your screen while in Safe Mode, As long as you don't Delete all of your Video Drivers.

After restarting remember to go back to Device Manger (steps 5 & 6) to make sure you have you new driver Enabled and the old driver Disabled.

if you can see you screen without going into Safe Mode? You're okay... Do a Windows Update to check if there are Windows Driver Updates for your Video Card...

Old Tapes work new ones don't

I'm having this exact same issue and according to the DELL tech it is common. What I had to do is keep using the tapes until they started passing. I bought 2 brand new cleaning tapes and ran two cleaning jobs before it would pass. My daily tapes are passing, and after several retrys my weekly tapes are passing. Since my Monthly tapes occur so infrequently, I'm just taking one of the Daily tapes out of the rotation and using a Monthly tape until it passes. It's either this or buy a new tape drive.
