SureStore DAT24x6 won't unload tapes to slots

This is a virtually new autoloader that seems to have issues with new Sony tapes unloading into slots 1 and 4. The autoloader can pick the Sony tapes from those slots, just not return them. If I use some TDK tapes that I would like to retire, there is no problem.

Anyone have suggestions? I have never had problems with DAT drives in HP9000 boxes, but this DAT24x6 autoloader makes me want to never use DAT drives/tapes again.
