Lib-152E autoloader no longer recognized after firmware update.


Try taking the dives out, connecting each one to your SCSI card and updating the firmware - wait at least 10 minutes afet Tape Tools says you can now use it again! This last bit is very important! Then, after you have done the update to each drive, replace the drives and try again.
I had the same problem with a TSL-SA500C and it woked fr me.

Please perform a erase operation and check if the drive does it, If its not then go ahead and check the SCSI controller if you have a spare one replace it.

SONY LIB-81 Error on LCD screen - Drive Information 51


I think this sounds like the drive is having a issue loading and moving the tape in slot 1.
AIT units are known for having this kind of problem.
Try a cleaning tape and then a new tape fresh out the wrapper for a test backup.

if it fails with a known good tape then its time to send it out for repair
