write error on LTO-6 with LTFS

I am trying to use my HP LTO drive Ultrium 6250 with the LTFS wizard in Windows Server 2008 R2. Sametimes I get the following errors. Error occurred while writing occurs near the end of the tape

Following these errors the device stops responding. I have to restart the server each time after this error.
