did you run the Inventrory after changing the tapes in LIbrary?

you can do that from GUI--> right click on meida--> inventory robot.

command line .. vmupdate -rn <robot no> -rt <robot type>

if you did that already.. and still having the issue.. you may the issue with the media need to verifiy that... 

if that is the case you need to re-lable the tape using the GUI or using bplable command... 

 but remember to uncheck the box "Verify media label before performing operation"

Did someone replace the labels on your tapes?
If so, you need to rewrite the internal tape label.
Unfreeze the tape in the Media section of the GUI, then Label it. You need to deselect the Verify tick-box.
