Symantec Backup exec not overwriting used tapes

I can not get backup exec to overwrite previously used tapes. It works the first time and then will not read them again. I choose overwrite media and it still wont work.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Go to "Tools > Options" and click on "Backup" in the left pan. Now you can see an option called "Media Over write protection". Change it to "Over write media" and click OK
Now go to last tab "Media" in vertias backup exec. Expand "Media Sets". You will see media sets created under that. Right click on the media set and choose properties. Change "append period" to "Infinite - Allow Append" and click ok.
Make sure you move all your medias under that media set

Hope it resolves your problem.
