Pass Through Mechanism

I had two MSL5026SL (2 SDLT Drives in each) connected toghther with a Pass through Mechanism, working perfactely OK. I have now added another MSL5026SL2 (2 SDLT2 Drives) on top of the 2 MSL5026SL libraries using an Pass through extension, and the MSL5026SL2 configured as Master with the other 2 libraries as slaves.

When all three libaries are powered on, I can not make any changes to the Master library Menu through the control panel. I get amessage saying the library is busy communicating with external devices. If I switch of the 2 Slave libaries, the Master library starts working fine.

The Firmware on the Master is version 4.04 and 3.19 the slaves. I should be able to push the latest firmware from the Master to the Slaves using the control panel, but due to the above problem I cant use the control panel.

Any ideas, anyone...
