I am trying to read the content of a LTO tape in Linux using the 'dd' and 'mt' tools. I am at the beginning of a file an run this command:
dd if=/dev/nst0 of=file bs=64k
and get an i/o error and the tape drive head moves 1 block. Now, I ran again the above command and the file is being copied from the tape, but the header is incomplete (I guess because of that 1st block I cannot read).
I may be missing something. Can you please help me with this ?
