Colorado 5GB with Travan 8GB Tapes

Can I use a Travan 8GB tape with my Colorado 5 GB Drive? I went to Office Depot and that was the smallest tapes they had. If so, what do I need to do, it keeps telling me that the media is not usable with this device. Shouldn't I be able to reformat it or something?
