Problems With Backup on a dds4 Tape

I'm having problem backing up files on my NT4, using 12/24 GB DAT tape drive. I'm using NT backup program and my NT is up to date, all the SP's are loaded and to my knowledge there are no hardware or software problems. When I reboot the server I get the following error:
" The following boot-start or system-start drive(s) failed to load- cddsn4i"

In addition when I look at the tape drive in the control panel I see that the Compaq DDS[1-4] tape drive or autoloader is not started. As a result any tape I put inside the drive is not recognized or I get the message that the tape drive is empty. I've installed the latest patches and drives, still no luck.
Any help would be greatly appriciated.
