OnStream is a spin off from Philips Electronics. You can find out about their drives and ADR technology from: http://www.onstream.com OK, so the tapes are called ADR. I downloaded the whitepapers and will take a look... The reason I ask is that I haven't seen them around in any catalogue

Interestingly enough, I have many computers that back up fine when I use an Adaptec AHA-2906 (5MB/sec controller) SCSI controller in the server. I upgraded the controller to a 2940UW (40MB/sec controller) and now I get -519 errors on 1/3 of both mac and PC clients. I'm guessing that
