HP C1537A HELP The Device reported and error on a request to mount the media.

We have a HP C1537A SCSI Sequential device. Currently a normal backup is down on Monday nights. This job will take 3 tapes and about 13 hrs or so. The following days are incremental.
Lately we are getting the following error:

Re: HP C1537A HELP The Device reported and error on a request to mount the media.

In this case an update/flash of the firmware on your drive is recommended to clear errors and set the drive back to default calibration. get LTT from: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?pnameOID=406731&locale=en_US&taskId=135&prodSeriesId=406729&prodTypeId=12169


Also uninstall and reinstall tape drive drivers this often causes this type of issue.

Thank you for the information. However, the link you submitted, directs me to a storageworks driver? Will this work with my SURESTORE? Just want to make sure before i DL the driver upgrade.

Thanks,

Dave:

To Download Library and Tape Tools, kindly click on the following link:

and choose the appropriate OS. Following this, download the Diagnostic called HP Storage Works Library and Tape Tools, Release 4.0.

If I can be of further assistance, do let me know.
