I am also told that that of this is covered under warranty, and part is not. If this is not where do a find a HP authorized repair center to fix this so i can get this back in warranty.

Re: MSL 2024 errors

Connect to the web interface of the library FLXE7DD8E and have a lok into the logs. Use LTT and do a drive assessment test, then pull a support ticket.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: MSL 2024 errors

Tape Alert flag 6 is a Write Failure which is pretty serious. As Torsten indicates you need to load L&TT and run a device assessment test on drive 1.

You should try several different tapes and see if the drive is having problems writing to one tape or several tapes.
