Exactly this happened to me over the weekend, very frustrating. I hope
your solution turns out to be as easy as mine was. After about an hour,
I discovered that the 3 disks which I been trying to use had been, er...
grabbed from the wrong stack. They weren't blank.

So, user error on my part.

Although, to my defence I have to say that absolutely no helpful message
is returned. Something as simple as "disk not blank" would have saved me
a ton of stress and a wasted hour.
