put the tape in and run an inventory on the drive, then run a catalogue on that tape. you will then be able to go to the restore and view the files by starting a restore and selecting the media you just catalogued.

If you have not already cataloged the tape, with the current tape label, you will have to catalog it -- tools - catalog tape...

inventory will check to see what tape is in the drive, catalog will go thru and see the data in side there and place it in the database
