This looks similar to some issues like I've encountered before. When running Arcserve 6.0 and trying to restore we got errors like E3801,invalid file header. We tried restoring the tape with different Arcserve versions and on different plattforms but nothing helped.
What we found was a demo program from http://members.aol.com/mscotgrove/imdrive.htm that helped.

MMPC or Media Merge seems to take any tape, any format and have the ability to restore it without problems. This solved the problem we've had for about 3 months.
Try this, you might be just as lucky as we were,

Good luck, I hope it helps.
