Make sure your backup server is not preventing the media being removed

try rebooting your server, if the tape then can be ejected it is probably your backup software.

If the tape wont eject even after both server and drive have been rebooted it is probably faulty and needs to go for warranty exchange with HP

Backup tape(RDX) getting ejected automatically after sometime while backup job is not running.


RDX tape drives, by HP (tandenberg)
did you reload all that HP software and drivers fresh?
did you try fresh tape.
i replace the tape drive, (new , used, NOS , from whom, ebay)

i bet the tape drive, logs errors, if you look,
the driver software will log that, and you can see why the tape
failed, my guess, damage to the tape, end to end.
try fresh new tape, NEW in a box, not used.

DDS-5 not compatible with windows 2008


I am pretty sure that the driver should be compatible with win08.

If you are using backup exec then try switching to use symantec drivers for your tape drive (setting withing BUEX)

If it is just the tape that cant be read or identified and was backed up using windows backup then try restoring the backup on a 2003 server and then copying the data across the network.
