Ultrium 215 Backup Errors

I have an Ultrium 215 external backing up a Novell 5.1 server using Backup Exec 8.5. I have been getting Tape Translation Errors on the verify. I also have received a few errors to clean the drive. I've cleaned the drive, even got a new cleaning tape in case the old one wasn't good, tried new tapes and I'm still getting the error.

TIA,

Chris

Chris:

Has it ever worked? Have you tried checking the SCSI termination for the HBA? Also, check the speed setting for the external tape (if it can be set).

Make a great day!

Roger,
Yes it has always worked fine and nothing has changed that would cause this.
