I would really like to use a firewire attached minidv tape drive (aka a digital camcorder) as a tape drive - that is all it is at the end of the day!
Does anyone know if this is possible, and perhaps could give me some guidance how to create the device ? My end game is to be able to use it with tar or something similar.
I would like to think that all I have to do is use something like mkdev.
I have no idea how to do that, but man would that be cool...
