SLR75 Tape issue

SLR75 Tape issue

I have a couple of 75GB SLR tapes for back for my Call pilot. One of them has started to eject right after insertion. Could this be malfunctioning tape? Is there anything I can do to salvage this tape?

RE: SLR75 Tape issue

You can try a cleaning cartridge on the tape drive. Some drives are more sensitive to some tapes upon insertion especially when the heads need cleaning. You can also try putting the tape in a different drive on a different server and manually tensioning it via command line if the other drive doesn't cough it right back out.
