I'm not 100% sure its writing, but when I try to write something and
then use "mt -f /dev/sa0 status" I got correct status of writen files so
I can just assume that everything is OK.
Tape is fine I was using it in work in DDS2 tape drive. I have some
problem with brand new tapes (DDS2 and DDS3)
Serials are not problem. I have turned them off temporarily.
Today I will try to read tape recorded on my machine im my work.
