Default Tape Streaming Problems

I am working with a Seagate 3421A tr7 Streamer with 20/40 gb cartridges.. the problem is that the tape drive will not mount my catridges.. anyone got a solution to my problem? I hva almost tested every possibility [i think].

This is what happens when i put inn the catridge:

The drive starts scanning the tape for data and ident and it rund for about 60 seconds, and then when it's finished with the usual scanning rituals it spits the catridge out!

HELP!!! anyone?

sounds like you need your tape drive cleaned.
