Windows 7: PowerVault 110t Ultrium LTO-2 support

09 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7
Dell PowerVault 110T Ultrium LTO-2 driver

Hi everyone:

I read this note:
about Microsoft taking out removeable storage manager from Windows Vista and 7.

I have a Dell PowerVault 110t Ultrium LTO-2. This is a full-height external U160 SCSI drive.
As I understand it, the drive needs drivers (even though it is a SCSI device) to work in Windows.
Since Dell has not published any drivers for later versions of Desktop Windows OSes, I wondered
if there were any other way to get the drive to
work in Windows 7.

I noticed that Quantum has drivers on their website for their own half-height LTO-2 drives.
Anyway, I wondered...Quantum has a driver on their site for half-height version drives for Windows XP,
Vista and Server 2008. It is Version . In the .inf file of the driver, the description lists:
Comprehensive Ultrium Driver Installer for Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008 Later on, the driver mentions
the Certance variant of the drives, and they appear to be supported by it. I believe my PowerVault 110T LTO-2
is a Certance drive. Can anyone confirm this?

Anyone have any idea wow risky/safe would it be for me to try that Quantum driver for the other
Windows versions in Windows Vista or 7 for my (half-height/Certance?) drive. Has anyone tried it,
or found another way to use these drives in Windows 7?

Thanks in advance for any help

Windows 7

For anyone following, I noticed after changing SCSI terminators (looks like
the first one was bad) that Windows 7 installed a driver automatically
for the Ultrium LTO 2. Whether it'll work with backup software I don't know.

If it's any help to anyone, the driver is ver. 6.1.7600.16385 dated
06/21/2006. (See attached screenshots.)

Wanted to try Barracuda (formerly Yosemite) backup for desktops and
laptops, but it refused to install on Windows 7, even with the usual adjustments
we talk about regularly here.

I'll try some third party backup software and report back, but I'm guessing
it will work fine.
