If you cat /proc/scsi/scsi, does it show up? If not, check your cabling (especially terminators).

There are no "drivers" for most SCSI devices because they conform to one of the generics: disk, tape, CD, etc.

Just try to write a *.tar file to /dev/st0. If this doesnt work then try to write the file to /dev/st. If this doesn't work then start
