inappropriate ioctl for device

I am running Red Hat Enterprise ES with all the current updates. I am trying to use amanda for my backup. I am trying to backup to external usb drives. I can access the drive just fine. When I try to run amcheck, amlabel, and amdump I get inappropriate iotcl for device. I'm still new to Linux so any help would be great.

Hi praetorrian,

Have you checked if amanda supports usb drives? Please check it.
