Error 127 means "Command not found"

You'll have to specify the full path to your command, like

* * * * * /path/to/make_tape_recovery ... ...

Please remember that cron doesn't set any PATH except for /bin and /usr/bin!
So if there are commands inside your script you should also call them by full path.
