    Hi all,
    picked up some spares yesterday. Got a tape drive which i thought was good, as never used one. Its an HP Colorado 20Gb Travan. I'm disappointed, dosent work with XP :x
    HP's site only has drivers for 2K. Dont suppose theres a way round this, unless i dual boot my system with 2K, but then thats not really the point is it!!!!
    Find it strange, that a 20Gb tape drive dosent have XP drivers, a 4Gb maybe.....

    20gb is kinda small by current standards
    and tape drives are normally the realm of servers and not desktops anyway, so its unlikey there woul be an XP one

    have you tried the 2k drivers? they often work without a hitch, although they wont be signed
    give it a go

    Thanks Ryan,

    yeh youre right, didnt really think about it properly. I'll try the 2K drivers and see what happens. Mind you i did try one but it said inf file missing or wrong. Let ya know.
    P.S, did you find out about the IBM drive???
