backup exec 8.5 - bad media ???

I just moved a DLT library from a Novell server to a new Windows NT server-- now every other tape in the library is showing as bad media. When I try to format a tape it will tell me that the drive needs to be cleaned before any other operation can continue?? has anyone ran into this before?
