Re: Media Attention


Concerning the media attention. Make sure that the tape is placed well into the slot by importing/exporting it. Check the tape visually to make sure that there isn't any defect on it, eg a label that came loose a bit.

If it happens with different tapes in the same slot number, log a hardware call at HP.

You can always do first a firmware upgrade to see if it solves anything, this will be one of the first questions of HP anyway.
