Question about Iomega REV Tape Drive
I was given a Rev 35/90 USB external drive from work (ex unit from backup process).
When powered up every time i insert a cartridge (i was given 3) after around 5 seconds they all just eject - they wont stay in.
I've got the device connected to a dell 2940 poweredge server running 2003 server enterprise. I've installed the latest driver software from iomega and the device now shows as a USB disk under disk drives in device manager not as a CDRom as it did before the drivers.
Am i missing something basic? Do you think the device is faulty?
Turns out the PSU unit was weak. It couldn't provide the power needed to spin up the disks when inserted.
