I have had the same problem using taper and QIC80 tapes.  Even afio gives 
problems with any files which are split across tapes but then recovers.  
I really do not know the cause of this and it is causing me problems in 
getting the Debian distribution onto my home machines.  Any suggestions 
would be appreciated.
