Colorado tape drive Jumbo 250

Will this work with XP Professional. Where do I find out how to get the correct driver & procedure to get it to work with "Backup My Pc". The drive worked with Wind. 98 in the same computer.

Thanks. Where would I look to find a company that could put my tape data onto CD's?
Can I get this drive to work by using XP's "Compatibility Mode"?

Hi George,

As for "can I get this drive to work by using XP's "Compatibility Mode"?

Like Munir said your tape drive is not compatible with XP. To be able to use XP, you need to upgrade your backup system.

Re: Colorado tape drive Jumbo 250

How'd everything work?
Here is a suggestion - hope it is not too late
You could always restore your data to a older OS (win 95/98) and install a CD-RW to move the data to CD
