Reading from tape hangs server

We've got a SDLT drive in our ProLiant ML530 connected to the integrated SCSI controller and am using BackupExec 9. Writing to the tapes is not a problem but as soon as an attempt to read is made the server locks up. Sometimes I am lucky and can stop the process by ejecting the tape but otherwise ASR reboots the server after 10 minutes.

Any ideas?
