Tape drive errors go away!

I'm running RH 6.2 ( 2.2.14-6.1.1smp ). Its' a Dell 1400sc Poweredge server.
The board only has ONE cpu. Its been running nicely for many months, but
lately, the tape drive has been acting up. We have an app that runs
backups, but for troubleshooting purposes, I'll use tar as an example. When
I ran tar -cvf /dev/st0 /tmp as a test, it hangs and goes into
uninterruptable sleep. Also noticed the messages below. Reboot, worked fine
for awhile, then same problem. Had Dell come out and replace mainboard,
cable and drive ( scsi controller is onboard ) . Still the same problem (
sorry Dell ) . As soon as I try to do any test ( Certance TapeRx, for
example) I get one of the messages below. The tape drive is a 4MM DAT DDS4.
Anyone else have similar issues? Any ideas? Please let me know if not enough
info. My dmesg is below the errors. I googled to not much useful avail.

Thanks - D
