The DLT is not to be MOUNTed .
You can only access thru the devices in "/dev"
The only thing you have to do is "mkdev tape" and install the correct one.
Please remove any tape you already configured and install it again.
then try to do tar -cvf /dev/??????
to see if it is working.
If it is then go to backup manager.
