1/8 G2 Autoloader 448

There is a tape in the drive and I cannot move it to an empty slot. Have powered the unit off and pulled the drive out and put back in. Inventory says the drive is empty but there is a tape in it that I badly need to remove. When you power up the device it displays Connecting Drive, Drive RDY, and the ready light will blink steadily on and off. It will do this for an eternity or until powered off. Is there any way to remove the tape without physically dimantling (taking apart) the drive?

Try reseating the drive, a firmware upgrade also try forcing drive to eject tape from the Operator control panel (OCP) try it using LTT as well as Remote manager Interface (RMI) somebody has to take that tape out.
