SOURCE: Tape eject from drive
Hi. This is from Dells site regarding automatic ejection of tape once inserted:
The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive reads and writes DLTtape VS1 cartridges. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive can read - but not write - DLTtape™ IV cartridges written using the DLT1/VS80 format. NOTE: The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive automatically ejects any other cartridge types and any cartridges whose format it cannot read. Make sure all cartridges that you want to use for writing are DLTtape VS1 cartridges.
Perhaps your cartridge is improperly formatted or is of the incorrect type?

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.

Bet if you check, it is not overwritting the tape (appending) on the first tape, but will overwrite the second. Check the media properties to see. If it is this, it has probably had an update when it started going south....
Same problem here, on with Symantec about it...
