Retrieving data off Iomega 35 GB Rev Disk

My computer does not recognize my Iomega 35 GB Rev Drive anymore. Tech support says I have to buy a new one. Any ideas on how to get the information off the REV disk without spending $200 for a new Rev drive?

Send me the old drive and cartilage. I will get the data off and put it on dvd's and send the dvd's back to you and keep the drive and cartilage for parts. I have several rev 30's and rev 70'S.

Software for iomega ditto 2.0 gb

these drives are so old, even I don't have the software. If I should haven I can't read it, because I done have any floppy disk connected to any computer. But if you really want the drive to run, why not try a program from Novastor. Or connect them, to check your drive is still supported. But first make sure your computer can connect the drive. Because newer computers don't have floppy connectors nor SCSI interfaces.

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.

We are trying to backup data files in tape drive 5 of 9 dirves but after backup by about 2 GB , there was a error , ''media full''. Product : ESL712E Product ID : HP Ultrium 2-SCSI

Tape drives are an antiquated backup solution. For less than $100 you can buy a 1 Terabyte USB 2 hard drive with space to back up even the most data-intensive systems.

Unable to retrieve data

If the machine hasn't been altered in all those years, retrieving the data shouldn't be a problem. If I remember correctly from my days with one of those, the driver software made the tape drive appear as any other drive in Windows so it was just a matter of copying data to and from the drive just like any other hard drive in the system.

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.
