NT Backup Keeps Failing

Hi,
I'm running NT backup on Server 2003 which has worked for ages.
Recently the tape drive failed so we replaced it with external hard drives.
Hard drives are formatted in NTFS format but I keep getting the error below as if they were formatted as FAT 32.

Log file:-
Backup started on 07/04/2009 at 23:34.
End of Media encountered while backing up to non-removable media.
The operation was ended.
Backup completed on 07/04/2009 at 23:46.
Directories: 326
Files: 5050
Bytes: 4,291,158,525
Time:  12 minutes and  0 seconds

Any ideas how to resolve?

Cheers.

I'm afraid that isn't my issue.

The backup is failing at just over 4gb on a 160gb hard drive.

There's more than enough room on the drive.

Hmm.....Interesting
Is this external hard drive empty?
Is it possible to reformat the hard drive with NTFS and try again?
