tar question

A newbie question. I'm trying to bakup the current directory to my MO
device. That device is registered in the system as 


and is mounted on 


Neither of the following attempts success in creating a backup.tar.gz file
on my MO drive:

        tar cvzf /dev/sda backup.tar.gz .
        tar cvzf /mnt/mo/backup.tar.gz .

What am I doing wrong? The MO drive is definitely mounted, but all I get is
a backup.tar.gz file in the current directory.
