Annoying tape bug - cleaning tape causes delay

Don Lee

Recommended Posts

I have an HP DAT-72 tape drive (HP-Storageworks - USB) and it has an annoying bug.


When I am doing an operation, and I put in a cleaning tape, the script "hangs" for several minutes.


In "Storage Devices", the drive shows up "Empty", and the script is "waiting for media". It seems nothing I do will free it, except to wait about 2-3 minutes. It then resumes operation.
