Re: tape drive

OK  the tar cv /path/to/file >/dev/st0  works, but
tar xv </dev/st0  gives this error

Sep 28 17:39:57 babylon5 kernel: st0: Error with sense data: [valid=0] Info fld=
0x0, Current st09:00: sense key Aborted Command

3 DBC=190026fc SBCL=ae

tar: -: Cannot read: Input/output error
tar: At beginning of tape, quitting now
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

is this a problem with the tape drive, the SCSI card, or is it user error?
