I have an AIWA GD-8000 DDS2 tape drive connected up and working nicely. My problem is that I can't seem to work out whether it is using hardware compression or not. The jumper on the drive labelled "disabled compression" is not jumpered. I have issued an 'mt compression on', but I still can't seem to store more than about 3.9G on a DDS2 120m tape using 'tar cvf /dev/nst0 /u1'.
What am I doing wrong??
Cheers and TIA,
