I have connected a new external tape device to my server , in another server , I use the device path /dev/st0 for the internal device , but I can't use the same device path for the new external tape device now , are they different for internal and external device ? if yes, what is the device path for external device ? thx in advance.

When you say "external" do you mean USB? I find that usually the thing to do is plug it in, open a shell, type dmesg and then study the output for clues
