or consult your manual :  http://www.quantum.com/serviceandsupport/softwareanddocumentationdownloads/s50/index.aspx

or download and run a diag.
verify that the tape does not stick out, and use no labels

tape vendors normally do not usually like users to open drives.

Are you getting this error on every tape in this drive or on just one tape. If just the one tape then it's probably the tape, if multiple tapes, have you tried cleaning the drive (don't do too many times as cleaner tapes are very abrasive and will reduce head-life considerably if overused)
