first of all, please don't send html mail, but plain text mail. Not everyone has
a mail reader, which is able to read html mails. Moreover, it's superfluous for
I have thought about your problem and, sorry for this naive question, but did you
insert a tape in the drive, when you got this message??? Typically, you'll get this
message only in this case!
If I'm not right and it seems to be another problem, it would be fine, if you will
do the following in bash:
bash$ STRACE='0x50:0,xxx' tar -tvf /dev/st0
You'll get a file, named xxx (possibly big!). Gzip it and send it to me, then I'm
able, to take a closer look into the problem.
