SOURCE: /dev/st0: Cannot open: Input/output error

Just the fact that /dev/st0 exists indicates that the OS sees the tape drive. When you say you are "moving the data to tape drive" just how are you doing this? Have you read the dump man page?

SOURCE: I have hp surestore DLT1e drive. Tape cartridge stuck!

For that you can try to press and hold the eject buttonfor 30 seconds if the tape doesn't came out then reflash the drive firmware revision.
After all that is the issue persists you can try to:
manually remove the tape by removing the top cover
Locate recessed thumb wheel
Rotate thumb wheel counter-clockwise until you feel resistance. Wheel may spring back when you release it. This is OK.
Locate hole in bottom of drive. Insert #10 Torx driver and rotate clockwise until tape ejects. If there is a lot of tape on the take up reel, this could take some time.
Rotate thumb wheel clockwise to eject the tape.

you could try opening the drive and delicately untagle the tape (with tweesers) dispose of the tap as it will get stuck again

Have fun!

HP C7438A, tape drive doesnt compress data


Several things might cause this.

1st off is that your drive will only compress if the backup software tells it to - so ensure your software is asking the drive to compress.

There is also a dip switch on the bottom of the drive that will disable compression - i think it it switch 3 on the underside of the drive on the main pcb

Problem with my hp Dat 160 usb backup tape drive


make sure your backup server is not preventing the media being removed

try rebooting your server, if the tape then can be ejected it is probably your backup software.

If the tape wont eject even after both server and drive have been rebooted it is probably faulty and needs to go for warranty exchange with HP

My Drive will not eject the tape


Turn off the tape drive. (Switch in the back of the unit. Wait 2 minutes and then turn unit back on. Tape drive should issue a write data command and then rewind the tape. After rewind completes the tape should eject. If it does not eject after rrewind completes than try holding the eject button for 5 seconds to attempt a "force eject"

Note: Do not repeatedly press the eject button as this can cause damage to the tape and the tape drive.

Tape drive does not recognize or eject tape


Yeah the Ultrium 4 tape drives only r/w to ULT3 and ULT4 tapes.

We put a Ultrium 2 tape in our 4 drive and it seems to be locked permanently.
