"Couldn't erase tape, error -216"

Recommended Posts



When trying to erase several DLTtape IV tapes with a DLT 4000 drive, I got the error "Couldn't erase tape, error -216". Oddly, other tapes work just fine.


Given that this is a DLT 4000 drive, would it be a problem for Retrospect if this media was previously used on a DLT 7000/8000 drive?
