Back in 1998 I posted about a circa 1992 "ASPITAPE.SYS" driver
I got from Compuserve to drive SCSI DAT and Exabyte under MS-DOS.
I seem to remember using it under Windows 3.11.

I even had a 'tar' and 'mt' that worked with it. I can probably
find them again if you like.

http://www.fship.com/ftp/pdtools has the "pctar.exe" that worked
with it, and http://www.filelibrary.com/Contents/DOS/49/2.html
has the ASPITAPE.SYS driver.

It was made by Greg Shenaut. He's still active at <greg_at_bogslab.ucdavis.edu>
although I doubt the software has been updated since 1992.

Today's Google search on ASPITAPE showed that you can
use it to emulate TMSCP tapes under the Osprey emulator, too.
