Sorry I just want to re-visit
Sorry I just want to re-visit this currently un-solved discussion.
I was curious about, & wanted to possibly clarify, the statement regarding your ejects 'failing':
the message that the process is done with error
The eject can throw up errors just by 'normal' usage if you're not clear on exactly what the eject procedure is doing at what point, but it would depend upon exactly what error(s) you are receiving as to whether this is 'normal' or not.
'Normal' errors can be replicated as follows:
- Right-click media & click eject
- In "Eject Volumes" window click eject. Status column states "Media eject in progress"
- On "Remove ejected media ... Do you wish to continue with the eject?" pop-up click [Yes]
- You then get "Eject aborted" and "The eject operation has completed with errors"
- this results in the media being returned to the library slot from whence it came & can happen if you 'ignore' the message in the "Eject Volumes" window in the "Status" column to "Remove media". I say 'ignore' but it's probably more like "miss" as this can often be covered by the pop-up window that appears at stage 4 above.
The correct procedure should be:
- As above
- As above
- Either: remove media from library CAP & then click [Yes] to "...continue with eject"
- Or: click [No] & then remove media from library CAP
- in both cases (3 & 4) the library contents from NB's perspective is that the media is now ejected (either in your hand (3) or in the CAP (4) )
..... or it could be that you're getting other error messages, you didn't say!
