Issue with HP 1/8 G2 Autoloader LTO Ultrium-4 Drive

The drive is connected to a HP P440ar Smary Array zero memory controller via SAS cable.

 

 

The Server 2012 R2 Host recognizes and has the latest HP drivers for the tape drive. When I open HP Library and Tape Tools its see the device. When I try to read the device I get these errors:

 

 

Waiting for I/O request to complete Pending command 3B (write buffer)

 

etc, and it will do this for hours and freeze and fail. Something is not reading correctly.

 

 

I have tried rebooting server, tape deck, etc

 

 

I have all of the latest drivers for windows. I tried with and without brand new LTO tapes in drive.

 

 

Any ideas on what to try??

 

Much appreciated!!!

I also get this error some times:

"An error occured while accessing the device. If the device has been hot plugged or firmware updated then please try a re-scan to rediscover the device"

 

 

Which I try then sometimes it comes back and the errors just repeat.
