Can't restore a file from a Backup-To-Disk Device

Level 2
Hello All,
I am trying to restore a file from a Backup to Disk file that I have previously created, and am having a problem.
Backup Exec 11d for Windows Server is telling me that the media required to complete the restore job includes a DLT tape.  The backup was created on a Backup to Disk device that I configured.
Why is this happening?  This makes me nervious about being able to use the Backup to Disk backups to do any kind of restore.  Have I set something up incorrectly in the B2D job?  When backing up, I never get asked to load a tape in order to start the  backup job, but yet when I try to restore a file from the job I am asked to insert Media {media s/n} which is a tape.
Background info:
OS: Windows 2003 SBS - SP2
BE ver: 11d / 11.0 / Rev 7170 / SP 2 + Hot Fix 36
Tape drive: USB 500GB
Thanks in advance for any post.

When you create your restore job, do yo point it specifically at the B2D device, or just let it default to "All Pools"
(Not that this should make any difference)
