machine doesn't know it has a tape drive

We just received a 3675 as a donation from a local company. When we
try to read a tape (for instance during a Restore Distribution) we
get a message that says:
"There is no magnetic tape hardware on HOST"
But there *is*. And it's registered as a service in the host's
namespace object. Anybody have a clue what the message means?
Thank you --

[I posted this message last week, but it seems to have been lost.
Apologies to anybody who gets it twice.]
Make sure that the tape drive is both connected and power up. Then:
