Please check your firmware on the tape drive. Update with X-Talk software that can be downloaded from www.quantum.com.

Library C7145 - Back Magazine is not usually recognized


This could just be muck and dirt in the library. The Mag needs to insert fully and be seen by the library.

Give the Mag itself a good visual inspection to make sure there are no broken pieces of plastic, and also clean out the space it sits in the library with a dry cloth or duster.
New Mags are available from www.tape-drive-repair.com as well as cheap repair options.
If you let me have more details as to exactly when this error occurs, then we can better track down exactly what is the issue. Either way this should be fairly cheap and easy to solve.

Item: DLT tape drive ( DLT8000 SCSI LVD Loader For Scalar 100 )Problem: Eject spring not fully loaded, as the result pick up tape unable to reach to pick. Please advice.


Look at this document to see if the interposer mechanism is holding the tape from ejecting. The solenoid that energizes to tape insertion or ejection sometimes relaxes and you have to move it manually out of the way to recover the tape.

Power down the computer, power down the library, disconnect the library from the computer, power it up. If the problem remains try it again but this time without any loaded tapes. If it is still in the error state check with Quantum Support.

My Storegtek L80 can't recognize all of its tape drives


That thing required a SCSI terminator pack doesn't it.

If so, is it working properly.

I've had those things go out on me before leaving me to pull my hair out many times.

Quantum Error


The host backup application probably still has ownership of the library. You normally need to select to 'open door' or something similar to release ownership back to the library
