Possible solution for Tapes being randomly marked as Read Only.
Tapes are marked as Read Only but there is no observable pattern which explains why.
In the binary log we see "Media Error" error messages on the tape drive.
These messages are marked as having context with an exclamation mark in the red warning circle. Opening this item by double clicking and scrolling down to the end of the text shows further error messages like:
SCSI :3300 25 0 134321 CMD WRITE [ 0a 01 00 00 01 00 ]
