tar is freezing my server


I am having trouble retreiving files from my tape archive. The archive usually consists of 4-5 volumes. I am using a hp dds3 drive.

If I execute:

Code:
tar -xvf /dev/st0 /mnt/public/CGI/Quality/Quality.xls
the file will be sucessfully extracted but tar will not exit afterwards. I cannot kill the process nor eject the tape. Eventually the system will stop responding and is unrecoverable without reboot.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom
