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)
