1/8 G2 Autoloader, howto turn off barcode reading

I need to turn barcode reading off. Is there a way to do this on the drive or in Backup Exec?

We dont barcode our tapes as sucm, but the external storage company does, whenever our tapes are written to the media name os overwritten with the barcode ID!

Thanks

There is no way to turn it off on the autoloader not sure on backup exec though. It cannot be done on Data Protector Express Either.

I'm wondering why you don't barcode label your tapes.  At least in the US, tapes with labels cost the same as tapes without.    It would seem (to me at least) to make more sense to go ahead and buy the tapes with labels.
