Just a thought.
Since you have a Mac system handy, why don't you download a 30 day trial of software like Bru-PE or Yoyotta (both Mac only) and write the tape using these. Both these softwares have reporting and logging so you can then involve them in the troubleshooting. Even if there is a hardware issue, the logs will reveal that. Your SAS card should work in the Mac with drivers.

At the moment you're on your own since IBM has disowned you (very common in India) since you're out of warranty. And you're doing a drag and drop copy to LTO which means you're at the mercy of Windows.

In the long term using some dedicated software to write to LTO tapes is a more robust and stress free activity than staying late at the office struggling with these issues.

Also, as a point of info, (not that it matters in your case), but here in India I've found, Tandberg support is much better even years after the warranty expires. They have a guy here who knows his stuff and the company gets fully involved in finding a solution.
