Try using the mc command to see if the problem is with the uma command or if there is something else wrong. Some of the mc commands are to check out the library are:

To display status of drives and slots:
# mc -p /dev/picker -r DS

To move tape from slot to drive:
# mc -p /dev/picker -s S# -d D#
where # = drive/slot number

To move tape from drive to slot:
# mc -p /dev/picker -s D# -d S#
where # = drive/slot number

To display vendor, product and revision info:
# mc -p /dev/picker -q
