LTO 2 tape coming up with !6 in LTO 2 drive, runs ok in an LTO 3 Drive

We have a few tapes here that we are trying to help a colleague diagnose. They are Fuji LTO 2 tapes, when we load them on an LTO 2 drive they come up with a 6 error code on the LCD, which is a media related error, however the odd thing is on an LTO 3 drive they load fine and we can read/write/etc.

I have tried this on both IBM and HP LTO 2 drives.

Any ideas what may cause this?
