Cant get my SCSI HP DAT external tape to work

When I issue a command "mt -f /dev/nst0 status"
I get the following error
mt: /dev/nst0: rmtopen failed: No such file or directory

While i check "cat /proc/scsi/scsi" my HP DAT is not listed in the SCSI devices

Any ideas what happening here?

Thank you,
Christos

How is the drive attached to the system?

What system is it attached to?
