SureStore DAT24

I'm having a problem with my DAT24. When I put a DDS-3 tape into my drive, and try to run a backup using Microsoft's builtin backup, on Windows 2000 server, I get the following message: there is no unused media with the selected type. Add unused media or click cancel to select another type. Can anyone tell me why I'm getting this? It's a brand new tape in the drive!

Hi David,

I would start by downloading the HP Library and Tape Tools utility, which will give you some valuable information about the status of the DAT24. Here's the download page:

Good luck!

David, did you resolve your problem with your DAT24 tape backup unit? I am receiving the same error you did. I downloaded the utility package which gave me no help.

Thanks
