check out the GetTapeParameters and SetTapeParameters API calls, this will return the media type and drive type etc.  Then go with the CreateTapePartition from there etc.

I'll see if I can give you a example later...

I don't know if you figured out the tape backup stuff they gave you ... but if not why not use your own backup procedures.  You can etc. use a Zip component to compress the backups so that no so much space is wasted ...
