About new LTO-4 tapes (dirty drive)

Hi, first of all i'm sorry for my english.

I've a question about LTO-4 first use (maybe defective tape). I bought 3 Sony LTO-4 tapes on Amazon, and i've tried to use two of them with error in about 1% of capacity (6GB). Both make the unit gets dirty and i've used an old used tape and works fine (at least for now at 10%). I think that all tapes are defective, but maybe i'm wrong because one can be defective, but two is hard (but possible)...

I've to do something on first use?, like for example full format.

Thanks!!, and again, i'm sorry for my english.
