I�ve Yosemite Backup Server Enhanced Pro Suite Dell 8.1 SP4, on a Dell PE 2900 with a Dell 124T Autoloader. Almost every time that I try to format a tape, I get a '4035 Error: Block size es larger than the maximun allowed transfer size'. I have been able to format one of seven tapes.This is a enviroment that I have repeated several times, and this is the first time that i get this error. any clues?

This error usually happens because the tapes have been formatted with some other software. You need to erase the tapes. First try a quick, but likely you'll need to secure erase each tape. Generally speaking you should erase, not format your tapes.
