I thought I'd try the new LTFS for Windows (Standalone on Win 7 x64) July 2012, version 1.2.2 I think.
With HP 3000 Drive on HP LSI based SAS card.
It installed ok.
The media can be formatted ok. (Obviously detecting the tape drive and partitioning the media ok)
When I R-Click on the drive in explorer, expecting to be able to "Mount", There is no LTFS specific options.
If I L-Click, it returns "The parameter is Incorrect"
The "FUSE4Win File System Launcher" Service is installed.
Tests with ltt show the drive is working perfectly.
Firmware is Z5AD
Windows is 7, Sp1, fully patched on HP Z200.
There are no errors in the even log other the "LTFS" can't open tape0, --which happens when I start the PC without a tape in the drive.
Any help welcome..

From what i understand there must be a configuration issue for this problem. just to start with you can refer to the chapter 3 in the guide available http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/S
and confirm the steps you are following are correct.
If that didn't help you can probobly collect the contents of "\ProgramData\Hewlett-Packard\LTFS\" and attatch them here so we can try to help

Same issue here, Mapping ok, LTFS FORMAT ok but when i r-clik on the LTFS icon in windows explorer, I don'thave LTFS properties and when I clik on it, the parameter is incorrect. Also, my drive is not seen as RAMDISK but like local disk.
I am using LTFS 2.0 and running WIndows 7 x64.
If anyone can help please !

LSI HBAs are not a supported SAS card for LTFS with HP Utrium drives. a P212 Array controller or higher with at least 256MB cache is the supported option.
This may not be your immediate issue, but uit certainly will stop you writing to the tape.
