linux tape backup dat 24e proliant dl380

Hi All,
We have connected a HP Dat24e to Proliant DL380G2 using Adaptec 29160 Ultra160 scsi controller. The OS is redhat 9. When we do a dmesg we can see

scsi0 : Adaptec AIC7XXX EISA/VLB/PCI SCSI HBA DRIVER, Rev 6.2.8

aic7892: Ultra160 Wide Channel A, SCSI Id=7, 32/253 SCBs

blk: queue c5302e14, I/O limit 4095Mb (mask 0xffffffff)
Vendor: HP Model: C1537A Rev: L111
Type: Sequential-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
blk: queue c5302a14, I/O limit 4095Mb (mask 0xffffffff)
st: Version 20020805, bufsize 32768, wrt 30720, max init. bufs 4, s/g segs 16
Attached scsi tape st0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 5, lun 0

When I do a "tar cvf /dev/st0 ." it says a irrecovable error happnes. In the /var/log/messages it says
"Write not multiple of tape block size"
