Good morning Gurus-

I have RedHat ES 5 SCSI'd out to a Quantum Superloader 3.
I can access the library with mtx status

I'm simply trying to read/display what's on the tape(s).

When using the command # tar -tzf /dev/nst0 I receive "gunzip: file1.tar.Z: not in gzip format"

Again, I just need to view what's on the tape. Maybe dump it to a txt file.
