Scheduling Windows Backup for Daily Backup

Ok, here is what needs to happen. I need to figure out how get Windows backup to back up selected files once a day for five days a week. the drive only holds one tape. it needs to override what is on that tape and i dont not want to have to prepare the tape everytime i put it into the drive. i've got it scheduled properly and it tries to backup but the log says "no unused media was available". Probably has something to do with the media pools. But i have a user who only wants to have to switch tapes everyday. thats it. thanks for the help. let me know if you need anymore info.
