Hey all,

I have a Seagate DDS-2 tape drive that I've been using without trouble for quite some time now. I just bought some new sony tapes (same exact tapes as I'm currently using .. but brand new) .. but for some reason I can't get the tapes to work .. everytime I try to write to the tape I get an input/output error from tar. The old tapes work, but not the new ones .. is there some type of tape formatting process that I missed out on or something? What could possibly be wrong?
