Can't read Netbackup tapes.

I get the following error when trying to read a tape backed up on Netbackup 4.5 in Backup Exec 9.1

Catalog 0001 -- The job failed with the following error: The DC2000 cartridge has was formatted with an unrecognized format.

Does anyone know If there is a way to read a netbackup tape on Backup Exex 9.1? I am trying to use this server as a DR test to test to make sure the data is on the tape

BackupExec for Windows uses MTF (Microsoft Tape Format) to write to tape.  Since NetBackup server runs on more than just Windows, I would think that it uses a Proprietary format.  If this is the case, you will not be able to read the tapes with BackupExec
 
You would probably get a better informed answer by posting to the NetBackup forum(s)
