Question about IBM 3581 Ultrium Ultrium Tape Drive
Ibm 3581 l17 tape library displays drv error 5 when powered on. There are no tapes in the drive.
Error 5 might be the drive motor might be faulty.

Error 5 states that there is a problem with the drive and not the library, either the tape path or read/write head. Replaced drive - works fine
