Since you mentioned that the tape drive is new and that backing up to a 
file on the G4 is working ok, I'm thinking that something is amiss in the 
SCSI voodoo department. Just 'cuz it's new, doesn't mean it works. ;-\ 
Have you tried a new or different cable?  Hooking the tape drive up to a 
different Mac? A different tape drive? Any and all of these things can 
lead you to an answer: cable, tape drive, scsi card, logic board even.

Just a thought,
