Try updating the firmware on your tape drive.

Try this, it may suggest firmware updates, if needed.

http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/asp/tools/en/

Also, try using the drivers supplied by Veritas instead of anything else.

http://support.veritas.com/docs/255501  may apply but it's rather long.

First I would make sure it's the supported version of 10.0 (5520) rather than the unsupported version (5484) that came out on CD, then run tapeinst and uninstall all drivers, then apply the latest driver release if you can find it.

Veritas download centre just went downhill, you can't filter for driver, install, etc now, just get the whole lot so there's 9 pages to search through and you'll probably come across the older drivers than the newer ones first since they only pushed the website downgrade this weekend, it's probably at http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/support/downloads.jsp?pid=15047 somewhere.

Supported version is at http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/277181.htm, uninstall/reinstall ought to preserve settings as long as you chose not to remove everything but if there's only a couple of servers being backed up it ought to be fairly simple to recreate the jobs anyway.

Also a servicepack and a few updates required, http://support.veritas.com/docs/277179 although Veritas update will direct you to the required updates.

I'm not sure, why not try it. You can also test the hardware with ntbackup since it uses the same format as Backup Exec (except the system state backup is different).

Had the tape drive been working with Veritas until recently or is this a new installation of Backup Exec with this device?  I found someone with a similar error on the veritas forums: http://forums.veritas.com/discussions/message.jspa?messageID=4387284

Different tape drive, but similar symptoms.  They came to the conclusion that the problem was hardware related.

I'd suggest, as andyalder said, attempt to run a backup using Microsoft backup (start -> programs -> accessories -> System Tools -> Backup) and see if it works.  Its a good way to test the hardware.
