Question 1480 + U2W tape 

Forum: PCMCIA SCSI Host Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Jun 20
From: Valentijn Sessink valentyn

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?

Best regards,

1. None Maybe a termination issue? by David Hinds, 2000, Jun 20
