Normally this issue is caused when you have a SCSI ID Conflict. Since you dont have any other devices, make sure the Tape Drive is not using the same SCSI ID as the SCSI Adaptor.
Once you determine that the SCSI ID is setup properly, we can go on to step two.
Go to the Seagate site and download the latest drivers for your tape drive.
The rest really depends on what OS you are running.
What Operating System do you have?
Let us know and we can take it from there.
