    DLT-v4 Drive hates Sata Card

    Just got myself a new DLT-V4 drive for backup and a Adaptec 1221SA to run it off and they don't like each other

    Tried it with a cheapo £5.99 SATA card and it works.

    Read a few reviews and it did say that its very particular about what SATA to use but the nice people at Freecom have included a SATA to USB convertor.

    Should I stay with the SATA to USB2 convertor or should I look at getting a different SATA card.

    Have to wait till 5 to reboot my server as I don't fancy how swapping PCI cards

    Re: DLT-v4 Drive hates Sata Card

    Although I moan all the time this is why I love IT, sort of.

    Adaptec Sata drive didn't work so I tried it with my Sata card in my desktop and it worked.

    Quantum gave me a USB to Sata convertor in the box so I tried that first. Rebooted server at 5 last night and started a backup and went home.

    At 9 I wanted to see how fast it had backed up so I tried to log in remotely and couldn't.

    Oh dear.

    Got to work this morning and it had crashed my server, completely frozen about 5 minutes after I went home.

    Now I have put the Ali SATA card and started again, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease work as I really need a backup.
