All tapes set to suspect in Sony AIT-4 drives
Posted by Sven Koester on 17 October 2007 14:07
This phenomenon affects sony AIT-4 drives with firmware version 1.01 to 1.05:
After ejecting the tape, PresSTORE reads the error counters from the tape drive and finds the HardError flag on this drive to be set.
Because of this, PresSTORE sets the ejected tape to Suspect.

The Suspect flag of the tapes can be reset manually in PresSTORE's volume manager, however there is no true error check in case the error flag is always. set.

Sony plans to fix this behaviour in firmware version 1.06.
