Does CentOS 5 support HP EH854A LTO4 External SCSI tape drive? [by rhuss]
Linux supports SCSI, IDE and old floppy based tape devices. Each device has unique name just like hard disk drives.
Running CENTOS 6.3, I have a DDS tape drive connected to the workstation.
I know the tape drive is connected and talking to the computer, I can put a blank DDS tape into the unit and write to that tape, extract from that tape, rewind, eject....ect....ect....
I received a tape at work that needs data extracted from it.
