Help! Debian 4.0 & Ultrium 1840 SAS

Hi there,

I've got an Ultrium 1840 SAS running with Debian 4.

It appears to be backing up files and then drops out with:

tar: /dev/st0: Cannot write: Input/output error
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Experimenting with different block sizes seems to make this happen sooner or later. I've tried different media and HP have replaced the drive but to not avail.

Anyone any ideas?

Thank you,

Jon

The OS is not supported.
