Out of my expierence -we're using HP 1533's, too- this could be caused
by other SCSI devices that are not 'compatible' with the HP drives. I
saw this problem especially with CD-ROM drives (mainly NEC) on the same
SCSI controller.
Propably you alredy checked that:
1. nothing has changed with cabling, term power and termination
2. you cleaned the drive with a *new* cleaning tape at least 4 times.

If nothing helps, try if replacing the drive helps. It might have been
damaged by too few cleaning (very critical with this model).
