Ultrium 215e wont read media

I have been using W2k backup utility with this drive, and it has been working fine. I recently installed a demo version of Veritas backup exec, then uninstalled after use. Now, after reinstalling the HP driver the Tape drive wont read any media. I tried inserting a blank tape as well as one that i had written to.

Any suggestions to get this thing back up and running?

Adam,

Jave you tried running the hp Diagnostic tool Library and TapeTools? If not, this would be a good place to start. You can get L&TT from:

http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/ltt/index.html

If you manage to get it running, there are a number of tests build in to L&TT that you can run to help diagnose the problem.

cheers,
Barrie
