READ DATA AFTER EOD TAG with SureStore 24i

On a tape I backup very important files using gnu tar from linux system Knoppix 3.2. As it was my first intent of using backup I made a mistake And instead of use the tar extraction command I use the tar creation command with my empty directory for destination. So Now I can acces aymoe to the important datas that where initially stored in the tape. I want to know if there a way to read a fixed amount of data from the tape including EOT (or EOD). Like reading the first 500 Mo from DDS-3 including all marks I asums to restore the tar header from my archive in order to get back the maximum datas.

I hope you could help me.
