Thans in advance

P.S. (/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log:tape hardware path 10/4/8.0.0.0: offline event reported, 85 I/O error entries were lost)

Re: Can't eject tape!!!

To do emerency eject press eject button and hold it for 5 seconds.
Check drive with HP LTT http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/ltt/index.html and take a look into its support ticket. You may also try to upgrade drive's firmware

Re: Can't eject tape!!!

Power cycle your machine (no restart). After this your tape probably will come out.
