I have never tried this on a tape produced by arcmain so try it on a test tape first (I guess one of the failed arcmain tapes is probably ok 'cos they sound like you can't use them anymore anyway).
On NT, there is a utility called backup (which backs stuff up to tape). This has a menu option to erase a tape. You could try this.
---- Alternatively ---
To erase a tape, try
tapecntl -e /dev/your_tape_drive_special_name_here
tapecntl -e /dev/rmt/c0t3d0s0
Good Luck (and remember I haven't tried this on an arcmain tape myself).
