SUMMARY: old Sun 3 tape drive not working with SLC? -- MAJOR STUPIDITY

Oh boy....

The tape drive we were playing with is of an older design (I guess), there
is a separate emuluex board and a tape controller board. BOTH of them
need a power plug!!!

We were so used to "modern" scsi devices that we simply plugged in the power
plug for the emulex board and didn't realize that there was another circuit
board waiting for power!!! We connected every cable but the power cable
to the tape controller....

It is one of those things that you walk away from it for a few hours and
then suddently discover the answer...

Thanks for all the replies guys!
