As I type, I'm doing a restore of a folder that got nuked from the server due to human error. My drive is a Sony DDS-3, the TSL-S9000L autoloader. Retrospect 4.3 on a beige G3, Mac OS9.04, 224megs RAM. My restore first required tape # 2 of the set, which I inserted in slot 8 of an otherwise empty magazine. It read it fine, then asked for tape #10. I happened to have tapes #6-12 in a separate magazine, so I next loaded that magazine, and choose the "scan tapes" option from the pop-up menu. After it read the tape names I used the pop-up menu to direct it to tape #10. Next it needed tape #11, which is in the next slot. But instead of offering me a pop-up menu to select the slot, I'm looking at an eject button where the pop-up with the slots and the names of their tapes should be. So I eject the magazine (as it's my only option!), and reload it. After identifying that 8 tapes are present, instead of giving me the pop-up menu with the "scan tapes" option, I'm told there's no media, and invited to eject just like before. Exactly how I'm to eject media that isn't there, I don't really get. I click eject, nothing happens. Fortunately, the autoloader eject button works. I eject the cartridge, reinsert, and let it begin the tape shuffle dance again. Now it acknowledges there are 8 tapes present. I choose slot #6 from the pop-up menu, and the restore continues. After reading that tape, it asked for tape 12, and had the pop-up menu available this time. I directed it to slot #7, and the restore completed. Can anybody explain why I twice lost the pop-up to choose the slot? TIA!
