Tape Drive Error

We have two Proliant 3000 servers (NT as the OS) each with a 12/24 GB DAT drive. Since Thursday both tape drives are giving a Tape Drive Error: "Tape device reported an error on a request to write data to tape. Error reported: Unrecognizable data."

We have even tried brand new media in both drives but the error persists.

Any ideas as to what the cause might be?

Re: Tape Drive Error

Did you get this fixed? We have the exact same servers and same problem.
