First I wanna thanks to all that recommended that I use tar or ufsdump
instead of dd. I used dd b/c I just wanted to play around with it. No
big deal guys, I prefer to use ufsdump too.

No one could really tell me away to read the data on the tape (probably
b/c there is no way :) ). I could re-dd (cute) the file on disk and
compare the file sizes but I'm much to lazy to do that. So I guess the
summary is stay away from dd unless you ABSOLUTELY have to use it :)
Use tar or ufsdump instead.
