STOP Message with QIC 40 or 80 Tape Drive; Not Initialized


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


During Windows NT startup, a STOP message appears displaying memory addresses and values. If you wait long enough, the QIC device driver reports a failure to initialize the device.


The QIC 40 or 80 tape drive fails to initialize because of the hardware configuration.


Make sure the QIC tape drive is attached to your computer's native floppy disk drive controller, not a proprietary floppy controller. If this does not solve the problem, contact your vendor for more information.
