I've installed on win2003 a tape drive (IBM 25R0012) with the latest drivers available The tape is functioning correctly (according to the "Device Manager"), however when I insert a new tape (i use the MMC for the management of removable storage) this end up in the pool "Unrecognized \ Unknown" and if I try to move on the available media I get: "the storage medium is write protected"
In fact, between the properties of the media here:
Name: 5 Status: Waiting identification Type: Unknown (read only) Sequence number: 5 Bar code:
Media pool: Unrecognized \ Unknown Online Library: IBM Ultrium-TD3 SCSI Sequential Device Unit: Unit 0
Active support: true
Everything I found on the net is based on the fact that the drive is a different generation than tape but in my case I have a reader of the LTO3 and LTO3 tapes. only thing is that I'm not sure the tape is IBM and the tapes are HP (C7973A) .. but this is not a problem right?
PS: of course the plastic tab for write protection is in place proper
