I am working with Networker 6.1 on a Windows 2000 Server. In the last days I regularly get one of the following error messages:

volume 000267 on \\.\Tape1 is being terminated because: Media
verification failed

Afterwards the tapes are marked as full, the drive is not able to unload the tape (I have to do it manually). It happens to both drives tape0 and tape1 . First it happened only to drive \tape2, then I disabled it, then it happened to \tape0 as well. In the event viewer is the following message: The device \Device\Tape1 has a bad block.
and in the log file:
04/26/05 11:37:21 AM nsrd: media info: unload error for jukebox '[email protected]' detected. Retrying
The Networker monitor shows : tape1 read open error: No error

We use a Qualstar TLS-4222i Jukebox with 2 SONY SDX-500C drives.

Is it a problem of the tapes, of the drives or what else ?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Hilde Gerlach
