New Backup Tapes

  noddy2121 10:59 06 Dec 2005


I use dds-4 tapes to backup my windows 2000 server. the tapes are quite old now and so i have bought a new set. When I place one of the new tapes in the drive and attemp to backup i get the following error:

"There is no unused media available with the selected type.

Add unused media or click cancel to select another type.

Note: it may take up to 60 seconds for removable storage to recognise new media"

Am i missing something obvious?

Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.

Have you cleaned the tape heads recently?
