Question about Dell PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 DLT Tape Drive

1 Answer

Operating System question

I have a Dell PowerVault 110T Service Tag: JWGQ581 that I would like to use on Windows XP. Is there a new available driver to make this work? I have always ran it on 2003 Server before but would now like to do my back ups from my home on my home PC. Any help would be appreciated,

thanks!

I don't KNOW that this will work, but what I'd reccomend is that you try using the drivers for windows 2000 on your windows XP machine

a list of dell drivers and support for the powervault is here:

Tape head dirty error after cleaning tape heads with tape cleaning cartridge


Hello, just a guess, but maybe you're using an old cleaning tape that has no more cleaning cycles left in it. Can I suggest you try a brand-new cleaning tape?

Tape does not lock in, message 6 on red screen


Set for any unrecoverable write or
positioning error where isolation is
uncertain and failure could be due to
a faulty tape cartridge or to faulty
drive hardware.

clean the drive with a clean tape, change a new data tape and try again. if you recycle the drv, the alert will disappear.

Tape did not eject


if the tape can not eject by press the button, you can only unload it manually, but you'd better ask an expert to do it, such as me, haha.

Using SDLT cleaning Tape


When the drives Clean LED comes on, install a "Universal" LTO Cleaning tape, as these drives do not need routine cleaning. Only ever clean a LTO drive when it's requested, as the cleaning media itself is more abrasive than a standard tape.

Tape eject from drive


Hi. This is from Dells site regarding automatic ejection of tape once inserted:

The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive reads and writes DLTtape VS1 cartridges. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive can read - but not write - DLTtape™ IV cartridges written using the DLT1/VS80 format. NOTE: The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive automatically ejects any other cartridge types and any cartridges whose format it cannot read. Make sure all cartridges that you want to use for writing are DLTtape VS1 cartridges.


Perhaps your cartridge is improperly formatted or is of the incorrect type?
