Drive: "HP:Ultrium 2-SCSI_1_sema_dds" has a media loaded, unload the media manualy to an empty slot and use the barcode scan or the scan as well to update the library inventory then run the format the media again selecting the same device.

Another solution:
Change the "busy drive handling" to eject, from the library properties.
Keep learning!!!

The drive still has a cartridge in it. Unload it and then run a barcode scan so DP knows the drive has been unloaded. Then try to format the media.

Hi,

 

Just unlock the media drives as it might get stucked and re run the backup again.
