Backup exec 12.5 - allow overwrite on the backup tapes

Hello, on SBS 2003 I have Backup Exec 12.5 installed. I created a backup job, and set the always to overwrite the backup tapes. But when I go to Media - and click on the backup tapes - on all of them there are these:

Infinite - Don't Allow Everwrite
Infinite - Allow Append


When the backup jobs starts, it says that cannot overwrite the media, to insert another one. And after that it is ejecting the tape and the backup cannot perform.

How to adjust the settings, so the backup exec can overwrite the backup tapes ?

I added a snapshot of the properties of the media set. I changed it  to keep them from overwriting to 0 hours. Is that correct ?
