Forcing tape to disk

Need to force a DDS3 on a Surestore 24 to disk. Errors on the tape... Was backed up with Veritas BENT .. Anyone know if utility or other method to force dump of tape to disk? using a new 24 with what amounts to bad tapes.

Re: Forcing tape to disk

Stephen, which OS do you use?
Are you sure that TAPES are bad? Did you clean your Dat24 after each 5 full backups or after each 20 tape pulling hours?
Try:
- cleaning drive 5 times;
- reading tapes by another dat24 tape drive
