Hi,

OS microsoft windows 2003 R2
Backup device - HP Storageworks DLT VS80 external
Cartridge - 40/80 GB DLT tape 1V

Problem Description: I am trying to use ntbackup for my server and with new tape or a used tape iam getting error " There is no free media available with the selected type.Add unused media or click Cancel to end the operation. Note: It may take to 60 seconds to recognize media".

Device manager shows driver provider as Quantum Corporation and Driver Details shows files  as QntmX32.sys and LT1f1x32,dll and windows
installed this driver automatically. Could you help me to solve this issue.

thanks

Any event log errors?  Does the tape library show up in RSM?


You can also refer this one. http://groups.google.co.in/group/microsoft.public.windows.server.general/browse_thread/thread/8a072cda36947eed/2fdf80d27f6c47c2?lnk=st&q=There+is+no+free+media+available+with+the+selected+type.&rnum=3&hl=en#2fdf80d27f6c47c2
