Unable to install the drivers for a DW027A HP DAT72 USB Tape Drive. Repeated attempts always end up with Code 39 errors (Driver is missing or corrupt).

Tape drives do need cleaning frequently and the 'auto clean' facility may not be enough. The problem is the continuous shedding of oxide needs cleaning right off and the auto system may not be enough. What you need is a back-up Drive. and the out of service drive needs physically stripping down to clean all off using a soft brush and where appropriate coproponal alcohol

SOURCE: /dev/st0: Cannot open: Input/output error

Just the fact that /dev/st0 exists indicates that the OS sees the tape drive. When you say you are "moving the data to tape drive" just how are you doing this? Have you read the dump man page?

SOURCE: tape drive does not recognize or eject tape

Yeah the Ultrium 4 tape drives only r/w to ULT3 and ULT4 tapes.

We put a Ultrium 2 tape in our 4 drive and it seems to be locked permanently.

Besides buying a new one, if you have the knowledge, you can try to open the tape drive and clean it from the dust it may have. You should also clean all the rubber roller's that thouch the tape (when it is inserted) with a cotton swab with some alcohol.

you could try opening the drive and delicately untagle the tape (with tweesers) dispose of the tap as it will get stuck again

Have fun!

I have windows 7 and wants to install hp psc 1310 but facing code 43


you probably have the wrong driver installed. Most likely you have upgraded to a 64 bit system, and the driver is 32 bit. Find out which system you're running (right click 'computer' and click 'properties').Disconnect the printer and Uninstall the software, then go to hp website and download the proper software and install here:

My DVD rom drive is not working I cannot "see" it on the system I have this error message "windowns cannot load the device driver for this hardware. the driver can be corrupted or m missing error code 29...


Check in device manager. To do this. 1st right click my computer, 2nd Click properties, 3rd click hardware, 4th click Device manager, 5th check that the computer is seeing the DVD/CD-ROM drives by double clicking the DVD/CD-ROM drives words or click the + symbol next to DVD/CD-ROM drives, the drop down menu will list your device if it’s there. If a device is listed double click the device. If it says it’s working properly click driver in the top bar and uninstall, then re-boot, the system will re-load the driver on re-booting. If the driver was corrupt it will re-install it correctly.
If the system cannot find the driver on re-booting it's missing from the systems file, go to the Support Fujitsu site and download and install the driver. Its free all you have to do is put the laptop details in the appropriate boxes and all the drivers for that laptop will be listed.
From your description of the error message it’s no doubt a corrupt or missing driver.
Hope this helps.
