USB RDX Drive not showing in Stand alone drives.



I am using backup exec 12.5 and recently my usb Iomega REV drive died.  I was using that as the device that backups were writing to.  I have replaced this device with a Tandberg RDX 160GB drive.  I have entered this as B2D, I ran a test and it appears to be readable/writable.  My question is this, my Iomega USB device showed up in stand alone devices, but my new RDX does not appear there.  I am sure it could be something silly since I am a new sys admin.(on the devices tab)

Yes, the drive appears in Windows Device Manager, under disk drives.  I am also having an issue where the RDX disk being ejected after the previous nights backup is causing the B2D job to go offline.
