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.

You can use the same Outlook you bought providing you have the product key to install into the new computer. Most product keys can be used on more than one computer.

Cannot download pictures from lumix tz65

explain the problem exactly get a proper answer ...
But general its a driver problem or you didnt installed the whole software to make it automatically
if it does not ask for driver plug it in ...and after the sound just take a look into My computer ..there are 80% chances to find the the card inside the camera as a removable device ...just open and copy paste or whatever .....
another way is just to take out the sd card ..and use a card reader to take the photos from it
if you do not have the driver for it and still want to use the data cable ...let me know to look for one ...
but <,,if you bought it new ...Im sure they provide the cd with a driver ..a manager ..and the user guide on a disc...I have a lumix too ...and I know what Im talking about
another way is to use ACDsee photo manager ...the 9 edition has an excelent import from device feature

The volume on my touchpad isn't working

Maybe your computer is not fast enough, or does not have enough memory to run / handle a lot of programs installed at the same time, or most of the time, maybe after you installed some application / did driver updates, your sound drivers get messed up.

Most of the time, if you are using Windows Vista, you can run Windows Update, and it will find almost any type of sound drivers for your computer system. Or if you are running Windows XP compatible operating system, then you can still try to use Windows Update to either find new drivers for your computer, or you can use Windows Update to find if there is any problems with your sound drivers / sound card.

HP LTO Drive Firmware Revs For Veritas 9.1

The problem you described is not a driver problem. So long as you are using the Veritas drivers you should be good to go.
SCSI time-outs and disconnects are hardware problems.

Sometimes they can be resolved by changing the throughput settings on the SCSI controller connected to the drive. Controllers usually default to very high speeds because they are used for hard drives. Lowering the speeds to support the slower throughput of tape drives can sometimes help.

During the POST there should be a key combination you can press to access the setup for the controller and modify the throughput settings.

Aside from that you have to replace the SCSI controller or tape drive until you figure out which one is causing the problem. Maybe the SCSI card is not seated properly.

I hope this helps.
