Quantum LTO 3 autoloader. 5 out of 9 tapes bad.

Recommended Posts

backing up to the above and had 5 out of the 9 Quantum tapes tagged as bad media. Am assuming that this is not normal. The tapes are only 9 months old and some only used once. Have done a long erase, moved the autoloader and backup server away from other machines, cleaned the drive, backup to disk is fine etc etc etc. Not all the tapes do it so do I just have a bad batch of tapes? Anyone else experienced this?
