Download LTT from the following link and install and run a system with the tape drive connected. LTT is available for most popular operating systems so choose the one appropriate for your system

Load a tape, and generate a support ticket and attach it to a message here and we can find out what issue you are having.

Is it a new drive or an old one ?
The DAT drive is having problems in the cleaning sensor and either the sensor is to be physically cleaned by a HP-Support representative or the Tape Drive needs to be replaced.
