Paul:
Do these tapes have a Use-Cycle management feature that causes them to
intentionally fail a life-expectancy test? (Its a feature, not a bug on some
drives and some tapes to prevent taking backups that can't be read).

No-longer recommended for use.
If the same tape works fine in another drive it may be dirty heads in the drive
where it fails.

It can also indicate the Tape Read or Write Head in the drive has reached end of
recommended life.
