  • can not backup to tape!!

    I have a server 2003 with AD !! i want to backup data to tape .
    I have 5 tapes ..but only 1 tape can perform backup!!but 4 other tape do not work!!
    when i insert tape backup . windows ask me " do you want to prepare this media for use with backup---> yes/no " I click yes .
    and then it inform (pending operator request : "IBM ... device couldn't write to media ..eject it , fix problem... see the event log and try again..")

        event log----->system
        "Library IBM DDS Gen5 SCSI Sequential Device failed to write a Free media label on media 17 because an I/O error occurred while writing the label."

        For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.


        Computer management----->storage---->removable storage---->work queue------>"Library IBM DDS Gen5 SCSI Sequential Device couldn't write to media "Media created 1/6/2006 at 2:15 PM - 1". Eject it, fix the problem (see the event log), and try again."


        i think my promblem is : can not format tape backup!
        but why?? there are one tape can perfrom backup?!!? and other tape can not??
        i sure those tape still work good !! and the tape are ready to write

          Purchase one new tape and see if that works. If it does, then the other may very well be stuffed? Also, do you regularly use a tape head cleaner?
          1 1 was a racehorse.
          2 2 was 1 2.
          1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
          2 2 1 1 2
