My SCSI Dat72 tape drive was replaced and now it shows twice in Libraries with a red cross.
If I look at the properties it says:
"the object identifier does not represent a valid object"
"the snapin's display may be inconsistent with the removable storage service"
If have tried deleting and rebooting but it remains the same.
If I "Scan for hardware changes" in "device manager" it vanishes and a message appears in the event log:
"Event ID 12. The device 'Quantum DAT Tape Drive' (SCSI\Sequential&Ven_SEAGATE&Prod_DAT____DAT72-000&Rev_A050\6&33f1244d&0&1a0) disappeared from the system without first being prepared for removal."
I think it may be due to being a different firmware version to the previous tape drive.
This looked like the fix but the Hotfix would not run on SP2:
I have the latest Quantum driver installed.
Its on a Windows 2003 SBS SP2 server.
