I'm having a problem extracting an archive from tape, I can backup to the 
same device ok, but when I attempt to restore the archive I get the following 

tar: /dev/ht0: Cannot read: Input/output error
tar: At beginning of tape, quitting now
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

The commands I use are:
Backup:  tar -cvf /dev/ht0 /home  ** Works OK.
Restore:  tar -xvf /dev/ht0 /home

Device is an Internal HP Colorado 5Gb EIDE tape.
OS - Linux, k2.4.18
tar Version - (GNU tar) 1.13.18

thx, Tony.
