Question about HP DLTVS80 (C750760008) Tape Drive
I have the correct new tapes. They successfully allow me to inventory, erase, name and catalog them. Unfortunately, none of them (I've tried two different batches) will backup. I receive "Data error - (cyclic redundancy check (V-79-57344-34028))". The media becomes listed as "not appendable (end marker unreadable)" even though the media-set properties is configured for infinitely appendable. The old tapes (3 years old) still work perfectly.
Could this be a hardware problem?
I'm having this exact same issue and according to the DELL tech it is common. What I had to do is keep using the tapes until they started passing. I bought 2 brand new cleaning tapes and ran two cleaning jobs before it would pass. My daily tapes are passing, and after several retrys my weekly tapes are passing. Since my Monthly tapes occur so infrequently, I'm just taking one of the Daily tapes out of the rotation and using a Monthly tape until it passes. It's either this or buy a new tape drive.
