problem running library and tape tools

Hi,

I'm having a problem with the above when trying to run a read/write test. I've used the console to load a tape from slot1 into drive DLT0, however I keep getting the following dialog box pop up:

Please insert the test cartridge into drive#1
Continue with test?
Yes/No

I click yes, but it just comes back again. Any ideas on this? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hello Lon,
It could be that drive 1 and 2 are mixed up in LTT, when you select the drive does it indicate that media is present?, try the other drive.

Is the tape write protected?

Can you go to the identify tool and click refresh after you have loaded the tape. Does it should you status for the current cartridge?

Thanks Jan and David for the responses. I found out after several attempts yesterday, that it was indeed as Jan suggested.
