Error 1405: No compatible devices

Data Protector Express 3.50-sp2 and HP Storageworks DAT72 USB
I'm getting this error when trying to restore backups from a previous system but using the same hardware and software. Tapes identify correctly and show the correct amount of data on them. Any ideas?

Re: Error 1405: No compatible devices

Doing restores can be tricky sometimes. Make sure that you have told the restore job to put the data in a different location -- otherwise it will expect it to land on the same server it came from. There might also be a checkbox for using any available tape drive (the drive might have a different 'name' when installed on the new server).

Let me know if this helps.
