I had a similar problem with my Exabyte tape drive for awhile.  The 
two things I did to help cure the problem were 1) I bought a new, 
high quality SCSI cable from Granite Digital, and 2) after I get a 
hardware (or dirty tape) error, I use the cleaning cartridge, but I 
run it through 4-5 in succession.

So far, that has worked, as I only occasionally get the errors.

Hope that helps.
