I'm trying to utilize the mirrored backup option which I have been successful in backing up to two different servers, but, when I try to restore I get the following error:
the volumn on device " " is not part of a multiple family media set. bakup with format can be used to form a new mediaset.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like you did not use or create a mirror backup, but instead striped your backup across multiple files.

If you just put in two files in the backup window - you are setting up striped backups, not mirrored.

here is my backup syntax. As you can see I'm pointing to two different servers. By the way, this is a active/passive clustered environment. I'm tryiing to set this up so that whatever node is active this syntax will work.
Thanks for your help!

BACKUP DATABASE AdventureWorks TO DISK = '\\vrdbserver1\sql server backups\SCVR2000\adventureworks.bak'
MIRROR
TO DISK = '\\vrdbserver2\sql server backups\SCVR2000\adventureworks.bak'
WITH FORMAT,retaindays=14

Okay, then you have specified multiple files for the restore where you only need to specify one of the backup files.

I am not sure what your intent is with a cluster. Why wouldn't you create a disk resource that is available to both nodes, cluster the disk resource and then reference that. You would then always have the drive available regardless of what node(s) are available.
