Cannot Inventory LTO3 tapes

Last Modified: 2013-12-01
The following Job Failure Error appears after trying to run and inventory on the tape drive that holds the tape. These are all tapes that ran backup jobs after having their media labels renamed with pipes in the names (i.e. with the | symbol)
Job Failed
Inventory Drive 00151  The job failed with the following error:
Physical Volume Library Media not found

This issue has occurred since the events detailed in my previous question:

I hoping there is way to fix this as I have about 5 tapes affected and hope that I wont need to replace them. There is no apparent physical damage.
