Error 3010 and 3005

Error 3010 and 3005

Error 3010 and 3005

3010 is Incompatible Format
3005 is Invalid Stream

I had 13,292 files backed up from an NTFS drive.  Made with TapeWare 7 from Windows XP with an HP Ultrium 1.  I moved the tape over to a SUSE box with an Ultrium 3 drive running TapeWare v8 SP2 and attempted to restore to an Ext3 file system.  I was doing this to test...

1: can a logical archive restore be OS and Filesystem independant
2: does TapeWare really work...I have heard bad things.

Every single file failed.  The majority failed with 3010 errors, some had 3005 errors.  How could this be?  The files are no more then simple text and image files with letters and numbers in their name...no spaces of special characters.  

Any ideas?  The import of the media worked fine, and all the files could be seen?  Any help would be much appreciated.  Take care!

Just an update...

When setting up the Backup job, in the advanced options, make sure to UNCHECK the "Native data stream format" option if you intend to restore to other operating systems and or file systems.
