i tried to acces a Tandberg TDC 3600 QIC-Streamer from NetBSD but it didn't 
work. Although it is listed in the quirk table in st.c it doesn't seem to work.
I tried various minor modes but the only thing i sometimes gert is a working
mt stat.

crw-rw----  1 root  operator  14, 17 Jun 29 13:48 nrst1

magick@bundy:/dev#mt -f /dev/nrst1 stat
SCSI tape drive, residual=0
blocksize: 512 (0, 0, 0, 0)
density: 16 (0, 17, 16, 15)

from syslog (after mt stat):

st1(ncr0:5:0):  Check Condition on CDB: 0x15 00 00 00 18 00
    SENSE KEY:  Illegal Request
     ASC/ASCQ:  Invalid Command Operation Code

st1: cannot set selected mode

magick@bundy:/dev#tar tvf /dev/nrst1 
tar: read error on /dev/nrst1 : Input/output error

I must admit that i don't really understand what's in the quirk table or the
minor mode concept.

What i can say is, that the Streamer works perfectly when hooked to my Amiga
with at least two different host adaptors under AmigaOS.
