IBM LTO 4 drive displays 0 with solid amber light will not accept tapes
Posted on 2010-09-22
I have a IBM LTO 4 tape drive that this morning when i took the tape out the green light was blinking still and i didnt think anything of it. when i tried to put todays tape in, it would not accept the tape. It not shows 0 on the red display (where it usually shows C for cleaning) and the light is solid amber. tried to disable in backup exec and then reanable. tried to use the eject utility and it failed. No alerts or messages in the application or system logs. I tried an inventory job and it came back with device was offline. So i turned it back online, and i still have the 0 in red and the solid amber light. please help.
