Most tape drivers are loaded from withing the backup software. Symantec and CA work like this. I'd start there.

If not you have to start the remote storage service and check in device manager to see what it defaults to and see if will find the device for you.

Tapes on dlt v4 tape drive shows write protected even though they are not


Hi Amit, Several things might cause this.

Hardware wise, the write protect switch may be broken in the tape drive. (two finger switches / levers to the side of the cartridge)

This is likely if you have just manually ejected a tape with a screw driver (not recommended).

However there are also software issues that could cause this. For instance Backup Exec could have been asked to prevent overwrite for 12 months. This is totally software based and is NOT dependent on the WP switch.

My top guess is that the drive will need repair though as this can be a common fault.

this may be a limitation on your motherboard. please check if your motherboard supports this much capacity.

How do I remove a stuck tape?


Power the unit down and very carefully unscrew the cover.  The greatest care must be when taking the tape out so that you don't bend the unit.

Consider blowing it out to get rid of dust and it very likely has a problem that will require service.  My quantum px502 had a stuck tape and I took the cover off but the picker was already off track - $700 to fix that and replace a sensor.

It gets heavy use and was serviced before in the three years it has been running.

Not backing up


Run Quantum's DLT from the following link:
http://www.quantum.com/ServiceandSupport/SoftwareandDocumentationDownloads/Sage/Index.aspx

Understand that a bad tape will produce failed tests, so try to use a "known good" tape.
Regardless of the Pass/Fail results, the LogPages are as important, as they capture past failures and may point to the real problem.
