: have python 4326rp scsi need drivers for w95
: drive is plugged into a adaptec aha-152x/aha-1510 scsi
: host adaptor is this ok???
: any idea about manuals
: thanks
Just fool the s/w.
Once again, "No need for drivers".

If you have a SCSI TD, follow my steps.
Install the SCSI board.
Connect the TD to the SCSI.
Reboot to let W95/W98 identify the TD.
Download Colorado Backup, from www.hp.com.
Install Colorado Backup.
Reboot.
Try to run Colorado Backup.
If it refuses to use your TD, and the TD is not listed in
"compatible TD's" in the CB help file, walk in my steps.
I was running CB using an Archive 4326, not listed in
the compatible list, and tried to change TD to a HP-1533A.
CB refused to use that drive.

This is what I did to make CB work with HP-1533A:

1) Colorado Backup was insatalled with 4326.
2) I removed SCSI board (Settings ControlPanel System).
3) Restart. No SCSI board.
4) Shut down.
5) Physically changed 3226 to HP-1533A TD and inserted SCSI board.
6) Restart, where PnP reinstalled SCSI board.
7) Restart again, where PnP installed 1533A tape drivers.
8) Colorado Backup runs with HP-1533A tape drive.

This is like a maze.
