There is no filesystem support for mounting gzipped tar files as filesystems, so you'll have to use it as a raw device. tar -xzf /dev/acd1 should extract the data.

no, i tried it with tar file. it got maybe 20% of way thru with unexpected eof.

with tar.gz:
 tar:  /dev/acd1: Cannot read: Input/output error
 tar: At beginning of tape, quitting now
 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

i just want to back up to a cd.
