Posted on 1998-01-05
I am having a problem with my tape drive.
I get the following message when I boot up.
st0: Error with sense data: Deferred error st09:00: sense key Medium Error
Additional sense indicates Track following error
st0: Error with sense data: extra data not valid Current error st09:00: sense key Medium Error
And I am not able to tar anything onto the disk. I get the
following error message:
tar: Cannot write to /dev/st0: I/O error
