Veritas Backup Exec error question

By jarret.bauer ·
I am receiving the following error when trying to perform a backup in backup exec 8.6. Can anyone with any experience with this software possibly help me out? Thanks!

Storage device "SONY 1" reported an error on a request to write data to media.

Error reported:
The parameter is incorrect.

Few suggestions:
- use other tape
- use a cleaning tape
- check if the services are running
- reinstall BackupExec
- update the driver for tape drive
- update the firmware for tape drive
If you run an "inventory" task it is done?

I uninstalled 8.6 and installed 9.1 which then worked. Thanks for all your help!
