: Before I pull out what hair remains in my scalp, has anyone gotten this piece of @$#%* to actually work in Windows 98?

: Using an Adaptec A2940UW in an Athlon 750 (overclocked 500), I can get Windows to recognize and install the drive. I can retension a tape, but any other access (Initialize, Erase, Backup, etc.) causes the tape to "shoeshine" back and forth for about five minutes before displaying an unrecoverable hardware error Ref: 07-12-23-00-1100.

: I have tried two different tape drives with the same result. All other devices in system are functioning normally. Help!!! I need my hair!

What kind of tapes are you using? I just bought 2 of these drives and attempted to use a TR-4 tape. This did not work. The proper tape to use to gain the full capacity of the drive 20GB is the TR-5 tapes. I will be purchasing some of these tapes shortly and retest. Please let me know if you have any recent successes?
