_When_ do you get that message? When trying to read? It's a NT
problem. The default block size is set to 512 bytes by the OS
which is not the typical blocksize of other OSes. set the
blocksize to the known value of your tapes (mt setblk 5120 or
whatever) or set it to variable blocksize (mt selblk 0).
Then try again.
