I use Brightstore Arcserve 11.1.

When I use a specific cartridge. I have the error message " Please mount one of the following media in device group

The cartridge has been fully erased (long) then formated and added to the group "save set" but I still have this message.

Note that we don't have this message with other cartridge (same model).

Is the cartridge corrupted ?

Thanks in advance,

Don't DLT tapes have a write-lock slider? Did you check that?

The write-lock slider is in the "write" position

As soon as you formated the tape it is no longer seen as a blank tape.

Run a Quick Erase on the tape and all will be fine.
