Write fail

We are using hp surestore dat 40x6 autoloader. When I am attempting to backup, erase of label media in autoloader front panel appears Write Fail. And in the event log the tape device generates an error message:

Ivent ID: 7

The device, \Device\Tape0, has a bad block.

Please, help me troubleshoot this problem.

Re: Write fail

Are you using the right cartridges? (DDS4)
I would suggest to run a test with LTT
