Backup Exec 12.5 Keeps Ejecting Tape asking for 2nd Media

Level 3

Does anyone have any ideas on this one?

The backup job is only 125 GBs and the tapes (Ultrium 2) support up to 195 GBs. Backup runs for several hours back up most of the data and ejects at the end requesting the 2nd tape.
The first media shows that is full (195 GBs) but the job is only 125 GBs.
Backup Job is set to overwrite the tapes (no overwrite protection). I applied some hot fixes (including 336718 when we had version 12 last week with the same problem),  I thought that would solve the problem, but it did not.  I upgraded to 12.5 (applied Service Pack 3) and erased the tapes (to make sure they were empty). Ran the backup jobs again and still after backing up 124 + Gbs is reporting "Loading Media".

If anyone can help me on this I would very much appreciate it.
