Help, backups stopped working (End marker unreadalbe)

Hi guys,

All of a sudden my Backup machine won't back up at all.
It keeps prompting to Please insert overwritable media

I'm using an LTO2 Autoloader (robotic library).

When I click on the tape via the Media tab it says Not appendable (End marker unreadable).
I swapped the tape for another, same issue, I quick formatted both tapes, same issue, I even tried a long format and restart the job, but again the same issue.

I uninstalled/reinstalled the tape drivers, I'm at a loss?

Does anyone know where/what else I can check?

Cheers
