	In another message you told that you take it from your AIX
system. Take a look at the DIP-Switches configuration, since it should be
different for that system.

	Look that your dmesg recognizes the tape as SCSI-2, not 3:

Jun 19 20:54:32 monty kernel: sa0: <ARCHIVE Python 04106-XXX 7600>
Removable Sequential Access SCSI-2 device

	I have a Python DAT DDS-3 here that works fine, but the model
shown in dmesg is another:

sa0: <ARCHIVE Python 06408-XXX 8250> Removable Sequential Access SCSI-3
