Actually these are old Backup-to-Disk "tapes", and that method of backing things up never worked for us.  Now they're just stuck there, with red circle/slashes over the media type picture...but we can't make them go away.

ok i understand now
first step is to make make all existing backup jobs backup to another media
and restart backup services then you can delete it
