Re: mt status output

This output means, tape is there in this drive.

 

Rewind it if u want to check whether tape is jam or not.

 

Rewind can be done from command only check man page of mt for more infor.

 

Hope this resolves.

The status is provided in words after the hex number in [].  There doesn't seem to be any problems.
