Model: TD-8000 TD-A8000
Operating System: Windows 2000 (Note: might work with other versions of this os.)
I opened the file c \winnt\inf\tape.inf with notepad. All I did was remove the "*" from the end of the 2nd line here
This will allows tape drives to show up in the device selection list. Any QIC 157 drive can run from the "IDE (QIC157)" selection under "Standard Tape Drives".
Note As far as I'm aware, all Travan 4 drives are QIC157 -- EVEN the SCSI ones. Don't ask me why, just know that indeed this driver seems to work for both IDE and SCSI models.
Overwrite your Windows 2000 %WINDIR%\INF\tape.inf file with this file or make the modifications yourself.
