VXATool is a diagnostic program used for configuring, troubleshooting, and upgrading firmware in the VXA tape drives with the SCSI, ATAPI and FireWire interfaces.
On Windows 98 and NT systems, the VXATool requires the installation of an ASPI layer. During installation of the VXATool, you will be prompted if ASPI should be installed as well.
Tape Device Driver:
If you are using a FireWire VXA drive, the VXATool requires that a tape device driver be loaded on the system. Refer to your backup application for information on whether or not it installs a tape device driver. Otherwise, a Windows tape device driver is available for download from www.exabyte.com. A tape device driver is not necessary for the VXATool to detect and access SCSI or ATAPI VXA drives.
