Information in this document applies to any platform.

There is a reset button hole just right of the display on the HP LTO drive. Do you know what that resets? There was this question regarding load issues. When the reset was pushed with a paperclip the drive was then able to load the tape. The drive had been powered off prior to doing the reset and the POR did not fix the load problem.
