How do I get information off backup tape?

I just bought a backup tape drive (off ebay) for my pc and I have a tape with information already on it. How do I access the information stored on this tape? I'm using Windows XP. Will I need any sort of special software or is the feature just built into Windows?

You will need to install the drivers for it. If they weren't provided check the manufacturers web site. Once the computer recognizes the drive it will be assigned a drive letter for access.
