Problem preparing media in new IBM The SATA DDS Generation 5 Tape Drive
I've recently installed a brand new IBM The SATA DDS Generation 5 Tape Drive and everything seems to be normal until its time to prepare my tape for a backup. My OS (XP Pro) doesn't give me the option to prepare the media even though it sees it, the only option available are to eject and free the tape. My question is; has anyone else experienced something similar when installing this hardware? The tapes are also brand new.
