Can only run inventory of one tape at the time. Why?

Hi!

I have a very old Qualstar tape library with two tape drives togheter with Networker 7.6.3. I have 64 slots in the library and have filled my library with old LTO3 tapes. The library is installed on my storagenode.
I tried to run an inventory with C:\ nsrjb -s mybcksrv -Iv -S 31-33
This does not work. The command output I get is:

C:\ nsrjb -s mybcksrv -Iv -S 31-33
setting verbosity level to `1'
1: rd=stgnode:qualstar [enabled]
There is only one enabled and configured jukebox: rd=stgnode:qualstar
Info: Operation `Verify label' in progress on device `rd=stgnode:\\.\Tape0'
Info: Cannot read the current volume label: read open error: command completed successfully (drive status is There is not a tape i
n the drive)
Info: Operation `Eject' in progress on device `rd=stgnode:\\.\Tape0'
Info: Unloading volume `-' from device `rd=stgnode:\\.\Tape0' to slot 31.

What might be wrong here? I have tried many different combinations of slots. The only thing that seems to work is when I only run inventory of one slot:

C:\>nsrjb -s mybcksrv -Iv -S 31
setting verbosity level to `1'
1: rd=stgnode:qualstar [enabled]
There is only one enabled and configured jukebox: rd=stgnode:qualstar
Info: Loading volume `-' from slot `31' into device `rd=stgnode:\\.\Tape0'.
Info: Operation `Verify label' in progress on device `rd=stgnode:\\.\Tape0'
Info: Expected volume `-' in slot `31'. The actual volume is `500002'.
Info: Updated volume `500002' in slot 31.
Info: Operation `Eject' in progress on device `rd=stgnode:\\.\Tape0'
Info: Unloading volume `500002' from device `rd=stgnode:\\.\Tape0' to slot 31.
Jukebox operation finished with status: succeeded
