 I think the problem here is that it's not got into the library's
inventory, depends on how you got that tape into the drive in the first
place... Perhaps the device you are using for scanner is owned by pools
other than the one the tape should be in...

After the scanner command try one of these two things:

1.  mount the tape manually...      nsrmm -m -f <device>

2.  inventory the slot the volume was loaded from....      Nsrjb -I -S
