SOURCE: DLT-S4 tape is stuck in Quantum drive all 3 LEDs

Hello, on some of the older DLT drives, if you press the 'eject' button several times the drive firmware attempts an unload operation. I'm not sure of the number of times you have to press it though...try pressing it in and releasing it 3 times (in quick succession). If that doesn't do anything, try 7 times.
It's worth a try!

Hello, if it has an eject button, press it quickly several times (can't remember the exact number; try 3 first, then 5, then 7)the reason being that on earlier DLT's the firmware would cause a drive reset which would, if there wasn't a detached leader or other physical problem, result in a tape unload.
p.s. do let me know how you get on!

Superloader3 , don't recognize real capacity of tape


this may be a limitation on your motherboard. please check if your motherboard supports this much capacity. If you have another pc or laptop that is about a year or two, check if they would recognize the the capacity of the drive correctly. if not you may want check with quantum about their drives.

Not backing up


Run Quantum's DLT from the following link:
http://www.quantum.com/ServiceandSupport/SoftwareandDocumentationDownloads/Sage/Index.aspx

Understand that a bad tape will produce failed tests, so try to use a "known good" tape.
Regardless of the Pass/Fail results, the LogPages are as important, as they capture past failures and may point to the real problem.

Quantum DLT8000 Drivers not installing properly Something strange going on with the installation of the drivers on my DLT8000. I'm able to use the xTalk program to run tests and stuff on the tape drive from windows so I know it's working properly. However, this is what the device manager says: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) and it shows the little red exclamation point. Getting to this spot was difficult because of some issue with the INF file which (I guess) I was able to fix via this blog post: http://www.loosewireblog.com/2006/07/how_to_fix_a_br.html I added the [ClassInstall32] to the very end of the INF file that came with the downloaded drivers from the Quantum website. I was able to determine that the key name for this type of device is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{6D807884-7D21-11CF-801C-08002BE10318} and sure enough, there is a subkey 0000 which contains all the info about my tape drive. This is what my setupapi.log file is showing: #-199 Executing "C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe" with command line: rundll32.exe newdev.dll,ClientSideInstall \\.\pipe\PNP_Device_Install_Pipe_0.{A270A48C-25F4-4B08-8975-00D9D0356FF2} #I060 Set selected driver. #-019 Searching for hardware ID(s): scsi\sequentialquantum_dlt8000_________0257,scsi\sequentialquantum_dlt8000_________,scsi\sequentialquantum_,scsi\quantum_dlt8000_________0,quantum_dlt8000_________0 #-018 Searching for compatible ID(s): scsi\sequential,scsi\raw #-166 Device install function: DIF_SELECTBESTCOMPATDRV. #W059 Selecting best compatible driver failed.

That #I163 error is probably what the problem is but I don't know what to do now... Any help is greatly appreciated.
