I had this same problem a few mins ago. I held the tape up with my finger as I hit eject. The tape came right out. Then I put in a cleaning tape and had no issues at all. You don't need to disassemble the unit at all.

Hi, I am steve, lets get you some help.
Sounds like you are having a major problem with this system. My recommendation is to perform a fresh install of the tape unit. This is a lot of steps so the best option is to follow the device manual
The reason to use this approach is to remove any corruption in the system that may be causing the error. Once is has been installed as new we can determine whether the unit is faulty.

Hi well the TD interface circuit may have failed?
IF the device isn't even "Recognized" and ISN"T listed in Device Manager, then it is most likely faulty, I am sorry to tell you.
SCSI is a very robust format, and the ONLY time a condition like this can exist is if the device is faulty.
These TD indeed fail in this way frequently, and I have replaced many units over the years, with exactly this "Fault" condition, this is "Classic".
The only option you have is to try to replace it with the same make and model, IF you can indeed obtain one?
