|HP-71B / HP-IL troubles|
Message #1 Posted by Gene on 9 Feb 2003, 4:02 p.m.
Hi. Have an HP-71B with a HP-IL module. Hooked up my HP-IL cassette drive.
Put in a tape with who knows what on it.
Tried INITIALIZE :TAPE
spun the tape around for a couple of minutes (like initialize always does) and then returned control to me. Seems like no problems.
Then tried COPY FILE1 to :TAPE
It spins up the tape like it is about to copy and then errors out with the message "checksum err"
Have tried this with 2 tapes.
Ideas? I'm thinking the tape drive has a problem.
