Solution for error 5 in LTO ULTRIUM 3 TAPE DRIVE OF TANBERG

My lto ultrium 3 tape drive was working properly. Couple of days back it gave error with code 6 which was contrued as having poor cartridge but today it has started giving error 5 which is considered as hardware error and it is not going. i have done power cycling couple of times but the error remains. Can any remedy be suggested so that I can check it out. I am on the verge of completing the project but normal course of repair requires shipment of material which will take 2 weeks

SOURCE: How can I turn on/off hardware compression in Windowns 2003 Server

Hardware compression is more efficient and faster than software compression and under normal constancies you won't want to do that. Having said that if your drive allows it you would need to download and install a software utility made by your tape manufacturer. That what you will use to turn off that functionality; not a setting on the PC or the backup software. Bottom line is you will need to talk to IBM support. Probably not the answer you wanted to hear but I just went through this with HP a few months ago. They have a general purpose utility that turns off the hardware compression, does a drive analysis, a cheapo write current alignment, firmware update and a few other neat tricks.

Looking for documentation on the jumpers on the back of the IBM LTO 3 (39M5657) tape drive. Thanks!


the jumpers most like to set SCSI ID, you can just jump it and check if the ID changed from host, it doesn't need a document usually.
