DLT copy using dd - dlt to harddrive and back


Hi!
I am trying to copy a dlt to a harddrive and back to a tape. Any suggestions of how to copy all files on a dlt onto a hard drive?

The command

dd if=/dev/st0 of=/data/file bs=64k

just copies one file. If I try to copy a second time I get an identical file.

All help appreciated! Kind regards, Tim!

/dev/st0 will rewind tape upon completion of the command.
Using /dev/nst0 will not rewind the tape.
