: : I have an AIWA tapedrive that is connected as a master on my secondary IDE the slave is an Iomega zip.
: : The Prim. is my HDD which has just been replaced
: : due to a crash and a CD-Rom on prim/slave.

: : My problem is I had to remove my tape drive momentarily to reconfigure the new drive. Now it will not restore from tape. It can read the folder names
: : and can restore some bmp files but that is about it. I get a message that says
: : "trouble reading from storage device."

: : The software is Seagate Backup Exec the pc is a Compaq 4814 w/WIN98se.

: : AIWA computer division is no longer in business so I am in a jam. I would even buy another tapedrive if I can find one that can read AIWA format. I really need to get the data from the tape it is my backbone. Can anyone help

: : me? :=)

: : P.S. I have the same problem with all of my tapes so I'm pretty sure it's not a bad tape. I've also cleaned the tape drive as well.

: Have you tried to remove the Iomega zip (the slave)? May be a CS (cable select) conflict.
: Regards larsp.

I did indeed removed the zip and the cdrom at one point and had only the HDD and the AIWA as masters on the respective IDE's. Same problem. Fortunately for me (I think), the new HDD is a seagate who is also the part owner of BackupExec. I am waiting to hear from them regarding a BackupExec upgrade in hope that this will cure my ailment. One thing I failed to mention earlier is that the HDD I installed is 28G and my bios would not support it so I had to use Seagates Ontrack/DiscManager DDO program to utilize the disk full capacity. In addition to that the full system save was created just before I upgraded to WIN98se. So in essence I am trying to restore files from a tape that was saved on a WIN95 platform to a WIN98 platform. I don't think that should be a problem, do you or anyone else?
