with only te power connected, press the eject button for approx 10 seconds. The drive will reboot and hopefully eject the tape.

SOURCE: tape stuck in drive

you need to get to the underside of the tape drive itself, there is usually a manual tape release mechanism built in however it usually requires the user to wind the tape off off the spools until it is fully disengaged from the spool and then to unload the tape there are usually magnetic servos and lever arms that need to be moved to release the tape itself, without being able to see the drive myself I could not begin to explain further as each manufacturer's mechanism is different, however the tape release looks like a recessed screw on the underside.

it is possible that if you manage to rewind the tape using the manual release, that reconnecting the drive may allow the drive to eject the tape using the eject button on the front panel

Ultrium 2 drive automatically ejects tape


Are you using the correct tape? If you try and use an LTO3 or LTO4 tape then it will just eject.

Does the drive make a clattering sound when first turned on and it goes through its POST ?

If the answer is YES then the drive has had a damaged tape loaded into it and the drive now needs repair.

Goto www.tape-drive-repair.com for repair or replacement options as these are quite inexpensive these days

Also try inspecting your media as per the guide here.
http://tape-drive-repair.com/tools-and-information/lto-media-inspection-guide/

If you find any damaged tapes then make sure to throw them away as should you reload these tapes they will go on to break your LTO drive again.

LTO tape Drive keeps ejecting tape


This could be that you are putting an LTO3 or LTO4 tape in the drive (or expired cleaning tape) Or it could be that the tape or tape drive has a problem reading the data.

Try using a brand new cleaning tape (clears the cleaning issue) and then try a brand new LTO2 tape.
If this works, then the issue was just related to your tapes, if this does not work then there must be a problem with he drive itself.

If the problem is with the drive, then contact www.tape-drive-repair.com for replacement costs. These drives are now very inexpensive and it might just be easier to replace the drive.

If you want to attempt to fix the issue yourself then respond back with a few more details and i will try and advise you on the best things to try.

I am getting a DRV PREV REMOVAL TYPE (46) message on display, every time I try and Inventory a tape or run Lable Media.


I have two of these Quantum SuperLoader 3 (with LTO3 drives) and one does keep giving me the same hassle. I haven't figured out how to fix this, but I've gotten past the error: disconnect the autoloader from the host computer (i.e. or stop rsm, mtx, or whatever controlling sofware you use), reboot the autoloader, get the tape out of the drive (e.g. move command from the autoloader's console or web interface), insert a cleaning tape (a few times), reconnect everything (i.e. start back up your controlling service).

Using SDLT cleaning Tape


When the drives Clean LED comes on, install a "Universal" LTO Cleaning tape, as these drives do not need routine cleaning. Only ever clean a LTO drive when it's requested, as the cleaning media itself is more abrasive than a standard tape.

Tape eject from drive


Hi. This is from Dells site regarding automatic ejection of tape once inserted:

The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive reads and writes DLTtape VS1 cartridges. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive can read - but not write - DLTtape™ IV cartridges written using the DLT1/VS80 format. NOTE: The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive automatically ejects any other cartridge types and any cartridges whose format it cannot read. Make sure all cartridges that you want to use for writing are DLTtape VS1 cartridges.


Perhaps your cartridge is improperly formatted or is of the incorrect type?
