ISA is a very old technology and cards usually require switches or links to be set to avoid conflicts with other cards. ISA is not plug-n-play like PCI or PCI-e.
The software talks to an ISA card by knowing parameters such as IRQ number, DMA number, address range. These values may be permanently set on some cards, while others allow changing via the DIL switches or jumper links. To get two ISA cards working in one PC, the two cards need to use their own IRQ, DMA & address ranges. Make sure there are no conflicts of settings on the sound card and the tape drive card.
Try changing the settings on one of the cards. The tape drive may be the easiest for this. The tape drive is probably connected via a ISA to SCSI interface card. This should have DIP switches or Links to allow the above settings to be changed.
