HP 8 GB IDE TAPE AND SCSI EMULATION PROBLEMS

HP 8 GB IDE TAPE AND SCSI EMULATION PROBLEMS

Post by Pete Ritte » Tue, 23 Jan 2001 01:02:18



Please forgive my English; I'm USAian.

Distro: Mandrake 7.2
kernel: 2.2.17-21mdk
Motherboard: PC Chips M805LR, 256MB RAM, 1GHz K7
Tape Drive: HP COLORADO 8GB, ATAPI TAPE drive

Like so many others, I'm having trouble getting my HP IDE tape drive
working.  I've tried as a regular IDE device with no luck.  Most of the
advice I've seen here suggests to use SCSI emulation.  So I reconfigured
the kernel, answering "N" to "Include IDE/ATAPI tape support?" and "Y"
to "SCSI Emulation", "SCSI Support", "SCSI tape support" and "SCSI
generic support", relinked it and now:

# mt -f /dev/st0 rewind
/dev/st0: Input/output error

# mt -v
mt-st v. 0.5b

# tar tvf /dev/st0 /*
tar: /dev/st0: Cannot read: Input/output error
tar: At beginning of tape, quitting now
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

# dmesg
<see attachment>

Can anyone help?  Thanks.

Please forgive my English; I'm USAian.

Distro: Mandrake 7.2
kernel: 2.2.17-21mdk
Motherboard: PC Chips M805LR, 256MB RAM, 1GHz K7
Tape Drive: HP COLORADO 8GB, ATAPI TAPE drive

Like so many others, I'm having trouble getting my HP IDE tape drive
working.  I've tried as a regular IDE device with no luck.  Most of the
advice I've seen here suggests to use SCSI emulation.  So I reconfigured
the kernel, answering "N" to "Include IDE/ATAPI tape support?" and "Y"
to "SCSI Emulation", "SCSI Support", "SCSI tape support" and "SCSI
generic support", relinked it and now:

# mt -f /dev/st0 rewind
/dev/st0: Input/output error

# mt -v
mt-st v. 0.5b

# tar tvf /dev/st0 /*
tar: /dev/st0: Cannot read: Input/output error
tar: At beginning of tape, quitting now
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

# dmesg
<see attachment>

Can anyone help?  Thanks.

Whoooops!

Forgive the multiple posts, please.  New installation and I hadn't
configured Netscape properly.

So sorry.

1. HP Colorado 5 Gb (IDE TAPE Internal)

Hi there,
Is there anyone using an internal colorado Tape 5Gb with linux ?
I'm using one on Linux Kernel 2.4.5 , i have loaded the ide-tape module
which seems to work because the device is detected and its special file
(/dev/ht0) have been created.
When i write on the tape using tar or cpio it seems to work , but when i try
to extract it doesn't work.
The kernel logs this messages :

kernel : ide-tape : Reached idetape_chrdev_open

kernel : ide-tape : ht0 : I/O error , pc =8, key = 5, asc = 2c, ascq = 0

Please help !!!
