Sun Unix vs Linux dd command

dd if=/dev/rmt/0n of=/burn1/mike/YYMMDD.prep bs=512
dd if=/dev/rmt/0n of=/burn1/mike/YYMMDD.out bs=512
These are the Sun commands. In Linux I used 
dd if=/dev/st0 of=/DLT/USapps/YYMMDD.prep bs=512
dd if=/dev/st0 of=/DLT/USapps/YYMMDD.out bs=512
I got "3+0 records in
        3+0 records out"
but not the 2 files on the DLT.
I got recognition of the DLT, a header data read, and this data was extracted:
OL1P00007                                                                     1= SUN
Mdl = DLT7000
Address = 0
Modename = No name
Modesel = 00 00 10 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00
Blocksize = 512
Drive type = streamer
Section = Changer
n = Changer

It was suggested that in Linux I look for a non-rewind device. Can you point me to a source for assistance in properly configuring this tape data extraction? I realize you are a debugging professional and not an instructor, per se, and I thank you in advance for any assistance you can give me. Steve Gere
