After a server crash, we are having some issues with Backup Exec.  We are using tapes and have inventoried and cataloged two weeks worth.  Backups have been fine, the issue is that the next time we insert the tape - Backup Exec does not recognize the media until we inventory again.  Am I missing something in the original setup?  Are there guides on how to setup a new tape start to finish and make sure it is recognized again?  Any advice will be appreciated, thanks again.

Whenever you insert a tape,you need to run an inventory .......there is nothing wrong with that.
How and why to perform an Inventory and Catalog in Backup Exec for Windows Servers
http://support.veritas.com/docs/269948
What is an Inventory?
An Inventory is the process of mounting media in the drive and reading the media label, which is then displayed in the Devices view. If this is the first time that Backup Exec (tm) has encountered this media, the media label is also added to the Media view.

Note: Each time new tape is introduced in the tape drive or robotic library, it must be inventoried so that the Backup Exec database gets updated with the new tape Information.
