DLT7000 backup

I have a DLT7000. I just activated it The density setting on it is set to 35 based on the tapes I'm using. I'm using Fbackup. When I run my backup it is asking for a second tape. I didn't get this prompt when using a DLT4000. My density setting on the 4000 was set at 20. I am using a new tape for backups.

My original problem with this same machine awhile back was I wasn't able to do a large recover but that could have been because of the density being read wrong. I was able to do Fbackup to the 7000 without a hitch now it won't work correctly. Any suggestions??

Hi Dan.
Switch it back. We use the tapes as well
without changing the actual density.
Try it and give some response please.
