What do you mean by IDLE ??
Do you mean that you have moved a volume to the drive but still
the drive appears to be empty or something like that ?

Hi I resolved the problem. I ´m a junior in this topics.
I think that it was IDLE ´cause Drive had a cartridge.

Next time please note the model of your library!

Idle means a tape is loaded, doing nothing.

Hope this helps!
