5* Needs a good USB2 Card
Reviewed by Rupert Brun on 22/09/2008
I was getting a lot of errors when verifying a backup - after mainy wasted hours trying different tapes, drivers, software etc I found it was the cheap USB2 card I had bought from BT that was causing the problem - plugged it into an Adaptec USB2 card and it's not had a single error since. Same cable, same PCI slot, so it's definietly the card that caused all the problems. So don't try to use this tape drive with a cheap USB2 card such as the Trust 5-Port USB 2.0 PCI Card. Now it's connected to a decent USB2 card it's fast and reliable.
