Thanks for testing!

Turns out the drive in question returns a non-standard error code,
ERROR_NOT_READY rather than ERROR_NO_MEDIA_IN_DRIVE to indicate that no
media is present.  This error code is not documented as a valid return
value for GetTapeStatus on MSDN.  I pushed a patch to handle this
error code and uploaded new developer snapshots with this patch to
https://cygwin.com/snapshots/

Please use the snapshot DLL for the time being if you need access to
your drive from Cygwin.
