Re-catalogue the tape.
Select the RESTORE tab and the media name will appear, expand the tree.
If you're referring to a database of multiple tapes and their contents, you'll have to go with a third-party application like Arcserve , BackupExec, etc.

Hi, for now it's just NTBackup, how do I re-catalogue and does this supply the date created for the tape??

just stick the tape in and select restore, expand the backup set in the window

It will show you the name given at backup time and the date and time of the sets
