Well, it was an ID-10-T error. A reboot solved the problem. Evidently,
Cygwin requires a reboot on W2K before all functionality is available.
I assumed, since I was reading the drive and able to get status
information, that a reboot was unneccesary. After rebooting the server,
the drive was fully accessible and I had no further errors reading tapes
created on the Linux system.
Thanks for taking the time assist.
