DAT 6x24 drive won't switch to second tape.

DAT 6x24 drive won't switch to second tape.

I am on a Novell Network and using CA ArcServe IT v6.6 as backup software.
I just installed this DAT 24x6 drive and am trying to get it to work. It only reads & writes to the first tape, then I get an "Insert another media ..." message. I thought that this drive was supposed to autoload the second tape.

Is there something I am doing
wrong or can someone lead me to a solution.

I thank you so much.

This is a Arcserve software issue, as the software has to issue a tape change command. Have you tried them for support?
