Seagate DAT Drive..failure

By techgirl75 ·
We have a 12/24gb DAT internal in server. We have had several, actually many, failed backups in last couple of months. We are using Backup Exec 7.3 ..and our firmware for tape drive is 735B. We were told to clean drive, did that.. and upgrade firmware. I have downloaded a firmware upgrade, but excuse my ignorance, am unaware on how to get a true DOS prompt in NT server 4.0. It cannot be done from Windows. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The firmware update should not require access to any files on your hard drive, so just boot to a dos disk, or maybe even SYS your disk with the firmware update so it is bootable. If you need a DOS boot disk, try www.bootdisk.com

Not necessarily getting an error code.. a flash blinking amber light on some backups. Which causes me to have to reboot server in order to do the next backup. It will say unrecognizable media as an alert however, but it isn't one certain media set or one certain kind of media..that is what stumps me.
