Can't erase a DLT tape

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I can't erase an old DLT tape to re-use it... why...?


- Mac G3 B&W, OS 9.2.2, Retro Desktop 5.1, Benchmark DLT110 tape drive, tape 40/80...


All backup went fine with a brand new tape. I received some used DLT tape of the same brand. I tried to erase them in order to re-use it. I got "error 211, media is locked" (error code not mentionned in the PDF user manual). The lock/unlock mechanism on the cassette itself is set to unlock...and this happened on all the used tapes....

Anyone have any idea....?


thanks a lot...
