Colorado 8GB

I recently had to replace my internel 5GB drive with an 8GB. Using my old 5GB tapes never presented a problem but when I first tried to use an 8GB tape a got a bad tape error during backup compare. Retensioning didn't help. I returned the tape and was given a new one under warrantee. This caused the same problem. Surely I didn't get 2 brand new faulty tapes? When returning to an old 5GB tape no problems. Help!

Re: Colorado 8GB

Yes , it is a Travan, internal Colorado 8GB. Is there another way of describing the model?
