Question about Seagate 20GB TRAVAN SCSI 5 1/4 TPE DRIVE HORNET (STT320000N) Travan Tape Drive

1 Answer

Installed identical replacement STT320000A but won't recognize tape

My old Hornet STT320000A died & I purchased a replacement on ebay (used). It will rewind a tape when inserted and Windows recognizes the drive, but I can't get my backup program to recognize the media. I'm using NovaBackup ver 7.3. It sees the drive but not the tape. Any suggestions?
