BE 2010 won't write to tape - unrecognized format.
I had a tape drive in a remote location fail, so I purchased a new LTO4 drive and shipped it down with a case of brand new LTO3 tapes. When I try to run a job to this new device, I get an error that the media is in an unrecognized format and must be erased before using. I've tried both a short and long erase, and I still get the same error.
In the drive, the media shows up as scratch media, and overwriteable. I tried deleting and recreating the job, but that had no effect.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd really appreciate them.
