Tapes not displayed correctly

Recommended Posts

I have the proper tapes in my drive.

I do not have a cleaning tape in.


But when I scan the carriage one appears as a cleaning tape, another as untitled

They also have Green icons instead of the normal Blue icons


If I singularly scan these tapes, a few times, they might eventually come up correctly named.


And this happens randomly...

I have to carriages full of 12 tapes which we rotate fortnightly for our backups.

Every 3 months I wipe the whole sets and start fresh backups.


Any ideas? Is it a mechanical fault?

As it's random I don't think it;s the tapes themselves.


Thank you,
