Cleaning Errors

I keep getting cleaning errors on a backup or format. This is with several tapes and on some tapes it allows it to. We just installed the HP Open Storage Data Protector S/W on a DLT 35/70 Tape Drive. This is a magazine-style tape drive. I'm updating the Firmware but still seem to have problems.

Re: Cleaning Errors

Have you tried using tar?
Use uma to load tape into a drive and then use tar to write/read some archive.
If you still have problems I think you should contact HW support.

Re: Cleaning Errors

How often you clean you drive ? and how often you change your cleaning cartridge ?

Try with new cleaning tape and new cartridge if problem persist contact HP.
