Hi. You haven't had any response yet so a long shot might be in order. I see you're using an adaptec scsi controller. I had dreadful problems with a brand new AHA29610 under 5.2, where lots of errors that seemed to point to a bad tape drive disappeared when I swapped the controller for an old Tekram DC390 I had lying around. I haven't tried the AHA again with 5.2.1 to see whether these probs have been cured.
