Upgrading From V5 To V6, Trouble With Ait-3 Autoloader

Recommended Posts

Mac user switching from Retrospect 5 Mac to Retrospect 6 for Mac.


Running Retrospect 6.1.230 with driver update



1) I noticed that there were a few AIT tapes that I could not erase. In Retrospect the 'Erase' button was greyed out for some of them.


Seemed like the tapes I could erase showed a blue colored tape icon. The other tapes I could not erase had a yellow tape icon.


The tapes were not set to 'read only' mode.




2) Maybe things work different in v6, but I can't click on a tape and click 'Scan Selected' since it is greyed out.


So what I ended up doing was clicking on the icon for the AIT drive itself and just have it scan all tapes which doesn't seem right, since sometimes I only want to scan one particular tape.


My AIT drive:

Sony LIB-D81 Version 0101 Driver: Sony Library 5.03


It's AIT Drive Sony SDX-700C Version 0202 Sony AIT-3 DC 5.03


Here is a screenshot when I try to erase a tape:
