I bought a long time ago an HP9144 HP-IB drive in Germany and I was wondering how it worked. I do not have the user's manual and drivers. What I saw was the fact my PC recognized an HP-IB peripheral via HP82335A card. Thanks for assistance.

Hi,

you know that the 9144/9145 were made mainly for use with HP9000 Series 300 computers running HP-UX.

I don't know if any drivers exist. AFAIK you could use the tape drive as normal device under HP-UX.

I doubt it will work with a PC.

Raymond

BTW: If you need tapes for this machine, maybe I have some spare...

Thanks, Raymond. Then people will find it for sale on hpmuseum and later if not sold, on ebay. I thought I could pilot it via HP82169A from an HP-71B. It has 9 cassettes.
