VERITAS Backup Exec 8.60 Rv 3878 does not accept brand new Sony SDX3-100C tapes using a Compaq AIT 50 GB tape drive.
I want to introduce new tapes to an ancient backup system as described above on a Windows 2k machine.
I tried the "Inventory" and "Label" commands. No luck.
The former results in the following error message:

The strange thing is there currently are tapes of that type in use.
- How do I make Backup Exec use those Sony tapes?
- What to do to the Sony tapes to have Backup Exec accept them?
