Storageworks Ultrium 3000

Hello there,

I have the brand new Storageworks Ultrium 3000 LTO-5 internal tape drive running on Windows 2008r2 through a LSI Adapter, SAS 3000 series card.
When i put a tape in the drive all it does is make whiring nouse as if the tape is being read and then comes to a dead stop with all the lights flashing.

The tape is new and i have tried a few old tapes too.
Could i need a more upto date SAS Card?

a little correction, the lights are not flashing.. they are solid.
