Can't see media in tape backup and how to restore tape to see whats on it?

We have  Symantec tape backup from around 2006. We are trying to re-install Symantec on the re-installed OS but Symantec isn't recognizing the media. We are running Windows Server 2003. Our Symantec version is, Symantec Backup Exec 11d, version 11. The tape drive is built into the server, and that is a Seagate dat72-052. A couple questions:
1. How do we get Symantec to recognize the media?
2. Then how to we restore that media to see what is on the tape?
3. When we ran the LiveUpdate, it failed because of an LU1835 error.

To get the tape recognized by Symantec, you got to do an inventory of the tape drive.  Right-click on the drive and choose Inventory.

Also see all the drivers of the Tape library are installed in Windows .

I think you need to import the Tape through Backup Exec and then do catalog in order to view and restore contents.
