Sun StoreEdge L700 with MTX

Post Sun StoreEdge L700 with MTX 
Hello @all,

yesterday we got a Sun Storedge L700 with 3 Drives LTO4 and 678 slots.
I can use mtx for changing the tapes from every slot to every slot, no
problem. My problem is that it moans if I want to load these tapes into the drives.
But I see people using this autochanger in the internet, what did I wrong?

Here is what I am doing:


root@amanda:~# lsscsi -g

root@amanda:~# mtx -f /dev/sg7 transfer 4 3 (runs perfectly)

root@amanda:~# mtx -f /dev/sg7 load 3
or root@amanda:~# mtx -f /dev/sg7 load 3 0
instead will fail with the following error message:
Loading media from Storage Element 3 into drive 0...mtx: Request Sense:

mtx: Request Sense: Valid Residual=no
mtx: Request Sense: Error Code=70 (Current)

mtx: Request Sense: BPV=no
mtx: Request Sense: Error in CDB=no
mtx: Request Sense: SKSV=no
MOVE MEDIUM from Element Address 1002 to 500 Failed

I phoned the seller of this and they said that they checked the library
with their tool and everything was ok.
Do I make something wrong or do have any recommendation?

No idea why but the changer seems to detected wether it is a LTO4 or not.
The error "mtx: Request Sense: Additional Sense Code = 30 " does mean
"INCOMPATIBLE MEDIUM INSTALLED" and because of this it declines to load
the media. After changing all LTO3 tapes to LTO4 loading does complete.
