Just the fact that /dev/st0 exists indicates that the OS sees the tape drive. When you say you are "moving the data to tape drive" just how are you doing this? Have you read the dump man page?

SOURCE: Tape Drive Block Size
Bit of an odd one but i agree that block size could cause an issue.
Try this link for the HP tech manual for this drive.
It may help with your issue and does detail block size changes on some systems.

For that you can try to press and hold the eject buttonfor 30 seconds if the tape doesn't came out then reflash the drive firmware revision.
After all that is the issue persists you can try to:
manually remove the tape by removing the top cover
Locate recessed thumb wheel
Rotate thumb wheel counter-clockwise until you feel resistance. Wheel may spring back when you release it. This is OK.
Locate hole in bottom of drive. Insert #10 Torx driver and rotate clockwise until tape ejects. If there is a lot of tape on the take up reel, this could take some time.
Rotate thumb wheel clockwise to eject the tape.
