data protector tape says full, but not???

I have an hp LTO drive in a HP dl server running win2k3, running DP express 3.5.  The backup starts and runs ok but gets to a point where it asks for another tape as the current one is full. I have tried new tapes and old. On the old tapes I have performed a secure erase and then formatted so correct tape name is in place. Each of the 6 tapes fail at differing amounts of data on them. I have also tried different compression settings. 

 

I have attached the error log.

Run HP Library and Tape Tools (free download from http://www.hp.com/support/tapetools ) and run the tape diagnostics, see what it says.    It's entirely possible that your drive needs to be cleaned, or, that the head is getting old and generating lots of errors that mean blocks need to be rewritten (using space for every needed retry).

Thanks for all the replies.

 

I have replaced the tape drive as it appears that data corruption was the cause.

 

Thanks all
