Vaio Laptop, kernel 2.2.16, PCMCIA 3.1.16, Adaptec 1480 cardbus card and a HP SureStore DAT40.|
Whatever I try, I can't have the laptop communicate with the tape thing.
- tapedrive on, insert card: laptop freezes.
- tapedrive off, insert card. Card mentions that there is no device connected. Then turn on the tapedrive: freeze. Turn tape off: laptop works again.
I tried various look alikes (insert card with "cardctl insert", etc etc, but to no avail.
The thing could be, that we need a 50 -> 68 pen adapter to get the HP40 to connect to the SCSI card. Another tape drive (HP DDS-1 tape) works like it should.
What can I do about this?
