Backup Exec 10d & PowerVault 114T

I've recently started to have problems with our backup tape drive. We have a PowerVault 114T and are currently using Backup Exec 10D. This was working fine but now it will not back up and when we try to run inventory or try to Erase drive we get the following message.

Inventory Drive 00130 -- The job failed with the following error: Library error - incompatible storage media detected in robotic library.

Erase Drive 00016 -- The job failed with the following error: Library error - incompatible storage media detected in robotic library.

Some times it will back up a certain amount of data and then it fails -

Storage device "QUANTUM 1" reported an error on a request to write data to media.
Error reported:
Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
This could be caused by either a dirty tape drive, bad media, or a SCSI problem.
V-79-57344-34028 - Error reading/writing data from/to the media.

I have ran the cleaning tape and there are no errors on the backup drive. I've reinstalled the drivers for the tape drive but nothing. The tapes I am using are LTO Ultrium 3 data cartridges. Anyone have any ideas what I can do?

let me know if you need any additional data.
