Having lotsa trouble getting this working. I'm using this command line:

cptp -hm 1 of=- | cptp -hm 0 if=-

(tried it without the -h too)

And getting this output:

After 0 tape marks, after 0 blocks: tape image format error on standard input

And this error in /var/log/messages:

Mar 30 18:23:24 billmax /kernel: (sa1:ahc0:0:2:0): 64512-byte tape record bigger than 
supplied buffer
Mar 30 18:23:24 billmax /kernel: (sa1:ahc0:0:2:0): tape is now frozen- use an OFFLINE, 
REWIND or MTEOM command to clear this state.

Any ideas?
