Question about Sony AIT Library LIB 152E/A1 (LIB-152E/A1) AIT Tape Drive
I recently updated the firmware in my Lib-152E. Unfortunately, upond completion of the upgrade, the Sony Tape Tool said "Firmware update completed successfully. You may now resume use of your tape drive", however, the Lib-152E was no longer recognized by the Sony Tape Tool. I tried rebooting, and now the Lib-152E is no longer recognized by the scsi card. I contacted sony support, and they were of no assistance whatsoever. Does anyone know of a way to reset the firmware or physically reapply a patch to this to get it to be recognized once again? I can't believe a firmware patch is unable to be reset somehow.
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.
