Operating system on the server?
If possible, use Library and Tape tools to run diagnostics on that drive (Read/Write test and LTO Drive assesment test).

If the drive fails assesment test, it's kaput.

Re: HP Storage works ULTRIUM 448 internal tape drive

Install HP Library and Tape Tools and run LTO Drive Assessment Test in L&TT.

(make sure you stop all backup applications/services before running L&TT)

Stop removable storage manager service as well.

You could dounload L&TT from www.hp.com/support/tapetools
