Addenda to the Scorpion 40 Installation Manual
IMPORTANT:
This sheet contains updated information that
supersedes
the information presented in
the Scorpion 40 Installation Manuals (PN 10005601-001 or 10006592-001).
Use only approved DDS-4 cartridges
Only approved Seagate-brand media and cleaning cartridges have been tested and certified for
operation in this drive.
Other cartridges may be incompatible or cause damage to the drive.
The
following Seagate cartridges are certified: Recording cartridge-STDM40; Cleaning cartridge-STDMCL.
For optimal performance you must use a 150 meter DDS-4 data cartridge (Model Number - STDM40).
Miscellaneous Notes
1) The “Clean” and “Media” LEDs on the front of the drive are green. The “Drive” LED is yellow.
2) SCSI IDs 8-15 are only recognized if dip switch 9 is set to “On.”
3) The drive must be power-cycled for a change in SCSI ID to take effect.
4) A cleaning cartridge that is used up is
not
ejected automatically. Press the Eject button to eject it.

System-specific corrections and additions to the manual
Windows NT
If you use Windows NT 4.0 with the 4mmDAT.SYS driver from Microsoft, you
must
set Switch 10 (the
Inquiry-String switch) to OFF. If you use the STDAT4.SYS driver from Seagate, you can leave the
Switch 10 in its default position (ON).
Novell Operating Systems:
Novell 4.11
There are two possible ways to configure the Scorpion 40 to work with Novell 4.11, depending on
which tape driver you use.
