I'm trying to restore from my back up tape (use NT backup). it looks for the catalogues on the tapes (there are two) and it only accesses the second tape to look, eventually it just comes up with no entries found. i know the backup worked.  any ideas on what to do here?

You'll be happy because this is a simple resolution:
In the backup utility, go to tools --> options --> general tab.
Clear the default "Use catalogs on the media to speed up. . . "
Now, catalog the media; it will take a while, but it will work.
