Normally when you get an alert like the one you posted there is a problem on the hardware side, I would suggest giving a call over to your hardware vendor to have them take a look at the tape drive to make sure it is working correctly.

Level 2
I just ran tape inventory again and I received this error now:

"Warning - The directory on the tape cartridge has been corrupted. File search performance will be degraded. The tape directory can be rebuilt by reading all the data on the cartridge. Robotic Library: Secondary Drive: Beta Slot: 1 "

It says I can fix it by "reading all the data on the cartridge." how do I do that?
