Tapetools and 1/8 G2 autoloader

I'm trying to update the firmware on my brand new 1/8 G2 autoloader because the thing doesn't work AT ALL with Backup Exec (newest version with all the updates). When I go into TapeTools, I get this message:

"The library reports that it has been reserved by a different host/initiator. Please unreserve the library before attempting any further diagnosis."

I saw ONE other thread that was closed from 2008 and it didn't help remedy this situation. Any ideas?

Huh. I disabled all the Backup Exec services and the Removeable Storage service, rebooted, and the thing worked. Now if I can just get this piece of junk to work with Backup Exec 12.5...

Closing since I got it to work.
