  • error 5 is normally a drive fault, or maybe a power issue.

  • Hello MarcoMerlin,

    Which LTO drive do you have in your PV114T? When you get an error code 5 on a tape drive, it normally means that there is a hardware issue with the drive. Are you able to see if there is any media that is stuck in the drive? If you reboot your PV114T does the error come back?

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Hello MarcoMerlin,

    The drive is needing to be replaced. The drive is not able to go through its power on cycle and complete.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.
