DAT drive headaches



Hi

I am running Core 2 with a SCSI Controller INITIO INIC 1060P and HP DDS-4 
C5683A DAT drive. I really want to try and get my backup routines sorted for 
Christmas but I am struggling with some errors when creating TAR archives.

the result from mt -f /dev/st0 status is
SCSI 2 tape drive:
File number=-1, block number=-1, partition=0.
Tape block size 0 bytes. Density code 0x0 (default).
Soft error count since last status=0
General status bits on (50000):
 DR_OPEN IM_REP_EN

I am getting a lot of the following error messages.

tar: /dev/st0: Cannot read: Input/output error
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: /dev/st0: Cannot read: Input/output error

On previous attempts (before I manually set the block size), I was seeing a 
lot of these
st0: error 70000 (sugg. bt 0x0, driver bt 0x0, host bt 0x7). inia100:13 0

Can anyone give me some pointers that might help solve this?

Thanks,

Jon
