I have been having trouble with our server's tape backup (but that's a different story...sort of). I was told to first test to make sure I don't get any errors using the normal backup program from Windows. (BTW the server is on Windows 2000 server OS). When I click on an file, then tell it back up destination as Travan, then the only choice is "new media". Then when I click on start backup it says "there is no unused media with the selected type. Add unused media or click cancel to select another type." I had just formated this tape, so it should be ready to use. I even stopped the process under the other backup software I was using (Tapeware).

Is there something I'm missing in trying to use the MS backup program?
