If you're using barcoded tapes then something may be wrong with your tape drive. The drive should read the codes then automatically send them to Veeam and you should never have to manually do an inventory.
If you're not, buy some. They may be expensive for a bunch of stickers but the time and trouble they will save you is huge.

Check for Unknown Medium Changer in the device manager. If it does appear – then please install the default windows signed drivers for this library as Unknown Medium Changer driver is not supported use Windows drivers/Manufacturer drivers instead.
