Hi all,

i was posting this problem to the list some time ago, regarding one
ExaByte 4mm tape drive model EXB4200CT connecting to Ultra 1 system. The
problem was i had got error message "Sensekey : No additional sense.
Incorrect length indicator set" while trying to extract a tar format
tape. i was able to extract without problem using other tape drive.

Thanks goes to Steve Butterfield and Joseph S D Yao for replying me.

Steve suggested me to comment out a line in /kernel/drv/st.conf for
EXB-4200CT. However, it doesn't not solve the problem.

Joseph had given the link to ExaByte home page, but i couldn't find
anything relevant to solve my problem here.

i welcome any other suggestion and comment. Once again thanks.
