Error with storageworks 232 external

Hi.

I use the StorageWorks 232 tape drive with FreeBSD and bacula.

This week my backups didn't finish I still don't know the issue, but I have this info, hope u could give me a clue:

First, went I run this command I get this:

mt -f /dev/nsa0 status
Mode Density Blocksize bpi Compression
Current: 0x40 variable 0 0x1
---------available modes---------
0: 0x40 variable 0 0x1
1: 0x40 variable 0 0x1
2: 0x40 variable 0 0x1
3: 0x40 variable 0 0x1

77 4C 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

What is the meaning of this info?

Is HW, cable or cartridge issue?

Next, I want to re-use cartridge and get this:

mt -f /dev/nsa0 rewind
mbx-bacula# mt -f /dev/nsa0 weof
mt: /dev/nsa0: weof: Input/output error

I will test the utilities just need to run inside windows and let u know.

I have try with cart but same issue.

Thanks!!!

Eject, load works without a issue.
