    Question Writing to a Tape Drive

    HI,

    I need to be able to write data to a 4mm DDS Tape Drive.
    This is attached to the PC via SCSI and uses the windows 4mmdat.sys driver.

    How can I get my program to access this device?
    Do I have to call functions from the driver?
    Is so how?

    Are there any good resources on controlling external devices anywhere?

    Many Thanks

    OS: Windows XP Pro
    Compiler: MS VC++ 6.0
