Try a brand new tape fresh out the wrapper.

If that doesnt work make sure you are using the right drive in your backup software!

It sounds like a message often seen in windows backup where you have selected the wrong tape drive from the list and it just tells you "No compatible media found" when actually the drive listed isnt even connected to your system still

Hp storageworks ultrium 448 drive light blinks orange


Hi John, not sure from your description which light you refer to.

But this sounds like your drive has either had a read / write issue - in which case you need to run a new cleaning tape through the unit and then retry using a brand new data tape - OR it has had a damaged tape loaded into it which has now broken the tape drive.


If the drive has been broken then try contacting www.tape-drive-repair.com who can repair or replace it for you and also look at


http://tape-drive-repair.com/tools-and-information/lto-media-inspection-guide/


The guide will tell you how to inspect ypoour media for damage and prevent you from reloading a damaged tape which will break your drive again

Why are the blinking of cleaning lights of tape drive HP Ultrium 448 Model No. DW017B


Use Library and Tape Tools (L&TT) to upgrade to the latest firmware
This is especially important if the problem with an Ultrium 215 or Ultrium 230 (LTO Generation 1). Outdated firmware in these models can often give load problems.
New revisions of firmware are released to fix issues that have been found since product launch. Some of these are firmware defects and some are additional functionality to deal with new drivers, server or application behavior etc. It is always recommended to ensure your drive has the latest released firmware from HP.
All firmware releases are tested thoroughly by HP and drives will only accept firmware that is intended for them - they will reject the wrong version - so don't worry, this is not a risky process.
Whenever you perform a firmware upgrade make absolutely sure that the upgrade process is complete before power-cycling the drive. If the drive is power-cycled while the upgrade process is still in operation the firmware could be corrupted resulting in a dead drive.
Ensure you have the most up-to-date drivers for your device.
If you do not already have L&TT click here to download
