With ioscan -fnCtape I get no think,

But with ioscan -fn you can see the usb driver :

unknown -1 0/0/2/0.1.16.0.0 UNCLAIMED UNKNOWN HP C5683A


I don't know how to load the usb driver and how to use the driver.

Any help is welcom ?

Shalom,

USB tape drives are not supported on that system. Probably. Could be something new I don't know about.

Add the stape driver to the kernel and see what results you get after a reboot.

You will get much better performance from a SCSI attached tape drive.

Check if it is supported.

In this example it isn't:

Hope this helps!
