Quantum Certance Ultrium 3 tape does not recognize media - Case # 00824267
this old tape drive was used with Backup Exec 2012 that was retired/removed/and good riddins recently. Server is a Dell R510 running 2008 R2. Veeam version 8 tape infrastructure shows the library as "Certance Ultrium 3 [Tape0]", but Drives show state empty with tape cartridge in the drive. When running the inventory Drive command, I get :

Can this old drive be used for archive purposes or is it just time to pull the old girl as the main repositories are 4TB USB3.0 drives?
thanks in advance,
