Quantum LTO 4 tape drive and Cygwin 1.7?

- Subject: Quantum LTO 4 tape drive and Cygwin 1.7?
I'm trying to use tar from Cygwin 1.7 Beta on a Win 2008 R2 machine to
backup some files to a Quantum LTO 4 SAS tape drive. I've tried all the
usual POSIX paths (/dev/nst0, /dev/st0, /dev/st1, etc.) as well as some
other variants (\\.\tape0) with no joy. tar fails with a "No such file
or directory" error.
I'm not sure how to find out details on the actual Win device paths. The
best tool that I've been able to find is devcon which list the tape
drive as follows:
Name: Quantum LTO 4 Tape Drive
Is there any way to access this device using tar from cygwin? Can I
specify Windows device paths with 1.7? If so, how would I identify the
path to the device?
Any help would be most appreciated.
