New LTO3 Tapes bad quality - what to do?

I bought 5 new HP LTO3 tapes (C7973A), but disapointed with the quality.

The backupjob normal has a compression factor of 1,1 to 1,2, and so the 370 GB of the backupjob occupy ~310 GB on the tape.

But on the new tapes the backup didnt finish, because only 210 GB of data filled the tape with 390 GB of Data.
Another Tape of the 5 was better and the Backup stored 266 GB and than the 390 GB where used up.

I tested with LTT and the tapes failed:

I tested an old used tape, and the LTT Test was good, so the problem is not the tapedrive.

I used a cleaning cartridge, but no change.

So i sit on 10 tapes with poor quality, which have only the half capacity of an LTO3 tape.
What else can i do?

Re: New LTO3 Tapes bad quality - what to do?

Hello AKB...

I am guessing that the drive itself may be bad. Did you run a drive assessment test from the latest version of Library and Tape Tools? If not please run and if the test fails then the drive will need to be replaced. It is unlikely that the entire batch of tapes can go bad.

Re: New LTO3 Tapes bad quality - what to do?

The Drive is ok, as long as i use an old tape. 

I have updated LTT from 4.29 to 4.30.

Made 2 drive assessment tests.

First with an other old tape, outcome: The test has PASSED and the drive is GOOD.

So i dont think that the drive is bad, its the tapes.

I have over 40 HP tapes that work good with this drive, and 10 new HP tapes, that have only half the capacity.

So it seems that tapes with a serial higher as 2xxxxxxxxx are bad.
The old tapes all have serial numbers like 1xxxxxxxxx or lower.

The serials of the bad tapes are:

Batch of 5 total bad tapes: 2180519135, 2210298150, 2090687898, 2100826389, 2140711788
Batch of 5 bad tapes: 2190491212, 2180482097, 2120514866, 2110510753, 2100575558

Re: New LTO3 Tapes bad quality - what to do?

It sounds like you are doing the right things running the drive assessment test and the media assessment test.  The results of the drive assessment test with your old media look good.

Have you tried running one of the new tapes a few times to see if there are any changes?  If somehow there was a contaminate such as a fine dust then the behavior will change when used multiple times.

I'll check with some of our tape experts inside HPE.

Re: New LTO3 Tapes bad quality - what to do?

I have used some of the new Tapes twice.
I will try the LTT Media Test with the 4x option, and repeat the test, as it only runs ca. 20 min. And look if its getting better.
A Backup runs over 5h for 200 GB on the bad tapes, as the speed is reduced. So its not so easy to repeat this often.

The first batch had each tape wraped with plastic, the second batch (the not so bad) had a seal, which sticks on one side only.

Test some Days ago: Fair margin, all other Warning

Re: New LTO3 Tapes bad quality - what to do?

The backup was faster as last time (from 1.228 MB/min to 1.499 MB/min)
But the problem with capacity still exists:
Written on tape: 262,3 GB

I did not find a Format in LTT, did you mean the "Tape Erase" Utility?
There are 3 options: Qick, Full and Secure
