Could be drive dirty, put cleaning tape or tape media having problem try replacing to another tape.

But then again could be firmware problems maybe need to flash update the drives have to get exabyte support in to check.

Hi For your query


These problems seems to be with your Tape Drive (Exabyte), even it also display there are some fatal errors in writing in very speecific Error Block 6406, so make sure your disk is corrupted or not, if it needs to be cleaned. Try sending this ASC: 0x3 (<vendor unique code 0x3>), ASCQ: 0x2, FRU: 0x0 to vendor.
