Backup Exec 12.5 - Procedure to retire media

I am looking for the proper procedure on how to retire media in Backup Exec 12.5. I have a 16 tape robotic library and need to retire some of the tapes that seem to be old and causing dirty tape head errors. I would like to be able to retire the tapes and then put new tapes in the drive.

Any help or suggestions on this would be great. Thanks in advance.

Are you asking how to eject/replace the physical tape?

DrUltima thank you for your response...No I'm not asking how to eject the tapes. I'm asking the proper way to retire the tapes within the Backup Exec program so that Backup Exec knows that I have retired the tapes and is not wanting to write to them anymore.
