I recently downloaded and installed aspitar and have had no success so
far either writing to tape or reading a tape written by a Unix system.
The commands and the result:

   C:\> SET TAPEID=0:3:0
   C:\> tar -tvf /dev/ct

   aspiread: errno: -16

-16 translates to a "MEDIUM ERROR", which I understand to mean that
the drive has encountered End Of Partition.  (Yes, the tape does have
data on it.  I verified it on a Unix system.)

I am running with the following hardware and software:

   Gateway 2000 4DX2-66V (486DX-66, VESA)
   MS-DOS 6.2
   Ultrastor 34F SCSI controller
   USPI14.SYS SCSI manager, version 2.04 (from Ultrastor's FTP site)

   On the SCSI bus (all internal):

   ID 0  Seagate 500MB hard drive
   ID 2  Toshiba 3401 CD-ROM drive
   ID 3  Wangtek 6200-HS DAT drive

Has anyone successfully used aspitar in this sort of configuration?
Any clues as to what the problem might be?

Thanks in advance for any help.
