I have worked this past week with Exabyte to resolve my problems
with 'st1: media failure' and there is a resolution.
On OLDER Exabyte 8200's, especially those with the 4$23 MX proms and the
B0 series SV proms, there exists some data patterns that the servo

and all works fine now.
I want to thank Exabyte for their help in this, they were very courtious
and helped me throught it step by step. (And this drive is three years
