tape drive (c1537) problems

I'm using a HP dat C1537 and my os is Suse 8.2 and whatever I do I can't make a backup on a tape. I can see it but I can't use it because it gives a Input and Output error.

Can anybody please help???

Hi there.
Did you try to 'tar'some files to the drive
or 'cpio' ?
Maybe the setup for drive is not correct.
