Unhappy SCSI tape backup problem

I am attempting to TAR to my SCSI tape drive on /DEV/ST0. I runng the command

tar cvf /dev/st0 /etc

I see the files on the screen and the tape drive light blinking as if something was happening.

Then, when it is done, I type in

tar df /dev/st0

to look at the files on the tape, but all I get for each file is

Warning: can not stat: no such file or directory.

This happend for every file. I can not figure out what is wrong.
