    You connect an external tape backup device to your computer by using a SCSI cable. The device is not detected when you restart your computer. which of the following is the most likely cause of the problem.

    A. An unformated tape is in the device drive.
    B. The device was connected before the computer was started.
    C. The device was turned on before the computer was turned on.
    D. The device's scsi connector cable is connected to the printer port, Not the scsi port.

    I think A, can you shed any light.

    It's definately not A, an unformatted tape would not stop the actual drive being recognised. As for B the device should be connected before the computer is turned on again C would more likely cuase a problem the other way about ie: if the device was turned on after the PC.

    Hmm, going back a while, but I used to have a SCSI tape drive, and it plugged into the parallel port. I remember having a problem at the start, but I didn't need drivers as Windows eventually picked it up.


    Now, if only I could remember what the prob was ....sorry, thats no real help to anyone, is it ...:oops:

    Has the SCSI cable been terminated correctly?

    I think the answer is D. Because both SCSI port and the printer port look alike.
