Error: No Appendable & Please Insert....

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I need some advise with regards to the errors below.

1. Please insert overwritable media into the robotic library using the import command.
2. Not Appendable (End market unreadable)

I've searched the forum and found a solution but it keeps coming back again. There are weeks that are Ok then all of
a sudden the error comes back again. The only temporary solution I did is to clean the drive and change the problematic
tape with a new one. So I assume it was a bad tape. 

Is there any permanent solution to this?
Any suggestion will highly be appreciated. Many Thanks guys.

You'd get error #1 if no tapes are available to be overwritten or appended too...this is fixed by checking your OPP/Append settings in your media sets and making the necessary changes.

For error #2, have you checked the TN below:
