Hardware compression is more efficient and faster than software compression and under normal constancies you won't want to do that. Having said that if your drive allows it you would need to download and install a software utility made by your tape manufacturer. That what you will use to turn off that functionality; not a setting on the PC or the backup software. Bottom line is you will need to talk to IBM support. Probably not the answer you wanted to hear but I just went through this with HP a few months ago. They have a general purpose utility that turns off the hardware compression, does a drive analysis, a cheapo write current alignment, firmware update and a few other neat tricks.

SOURCE: Loading Media
Exact same problem with our Quantum SuperLoader 3 LTO-2 Tape Drive. I start the Sequential ops but when the first tape is full, the BackupExec software sends a message asking for Loading a new media instead of ejecting the tape. In fact, I think that it is the tape drive job to unload the tape when it is full.
If I eject the tape from the Backup exec job menu, it does not work at all. I have to manually move the tape from drive to slot 1 then the drive automatically move the tape from slot 2 to drive and at that time, backup exce continues the backup. Our backup takes 3 tapes so we have to manually move all 3 tapes manually. It is really strange. Looks like a lot of people are having this problem.
I did a lot of research on quantum sites and symantec sites but nothing so far.
thanks to anybody who can help on this one.

The error is because the driver isn't loaded for the device. Look up how to add the device in symantec help. If windows recognizes it already then usually you can go to devices and add teh device from within symantec.
