i recieved some old servers from a friend, they had some tape drives in them, with the tape(200Gb). i was curiuos to find out if they will work on my pc...i pluged out the card they were connected to, inserted the lot into my pc. when it booted, it didnt do the same thing as usual... it first scanned for something(dono wat).. when windows came on it told me it found new hardware and have installed it.when i opened my computer i didnt see any thing...when i looked at device manager, it showed me the scsi card and the tape drive with no yellow or any other funny signs...
can i get this to work on my pc?
Im not a pc-guru....still getting there...have to start somewer!!

What do you want to do with them? Use them for backup? Are you sure they are 200GB?

You can use them if you can find backup software that supports tape. NTBackup used to, but not since XP (I believe).
