: For the ones who are struggling with a Ditto Max (without much support from Iomega or Tecmar)...

: I found the backup program for it on the Iomega site, as well as a test for (floppy-interface) speed, which is essential!

: Unfortunately I was fobbed off with a drive *without* the Ditto Dash accelerator card (Internal Tapedrive).

: Long story, shortened: I contacted EXABYTE and bought a Eagle (2MBit) accelerator card, as I cannot get the Ditto Dash ANYWHERE! Installed it in a Win98 box, configured the thing manually and with the Iomega software am now making backup :-)

: However, trying this in a Win2Kpro box (first..) failed; the card "needs" drivers that are not available as it is supposed to be P&P.

: Maybe this info is of use to some other struggling souls out there :-)

i had the same problem when I changed from win98 to w2k.
Now I solved the problem by using a DittoDashDXJ card.
This is not a PnP-card. I got the card from Iomega Service. It was
designed for Windows NT.
You have to do the settings for IRQ, DMA and IO-Port manually by Jumpers.
I.E. IRQ=5, DMA=3, IO =360. Bios settings for IRQ and DMA have to be ISA.
After installing the Ditto Software, the drive will be recognized
automatically. If not, you can add the controller with the correct
settings manually. After this the drive is recognized and the Backup-Program
works without any problem.
Important: In the System Monitor Window of W2k the controller and the drive are not
Good luck!
