DP Media Import 5.1 to 6.0 Error

When attempting to import media from a 5.1 HP-UX CM to a new Win2k3 DP 6 CM I receive two errors.
1. [Major][90:52] Cannot read from device ([87] The parameter is incorrect. )
&
2. [Major][90:53] Cannot seek to requested position ([87] The parameter is incorrect. )

There are a number of similar posts in the forums but none of these seem to resolve this issue. The tapes are loaded, DP reports that the media is DP foreign media, then the errors are reported and the import fails.
There do not appear to be any issues with the hardware or configuration (but please make some suggestions), and the block sizes are consistent.
If anyone has overcome a similar issue or has any suggestions at all your help is most appreciated.

Hi,

There are 2 options we can try here.
1. Did you try importing the media before trying to restore from them

2. Once you insert the media, go to restore tab in DP GUI,actions -- select List from media, see if you are able to see the data from the media.You can restore the data from here
