Initialization of medium failed.

How? On what?

There's a "Ready light"? Where?

What makes you think that it can change
color?

> [...] I get below Message: [...]

From what? When you do what?

Did you load a tape?

What, exactly, did you do?

Google should be able to find a PDF product
manual which you can download. You should
read one.
