I'm pretty sure you already have appropriate st (tape) and sd (disk)
devices in /dev.

This all looks good to me.  But I think maybe you don't have the SCSI
tape driver loaded?

I'm not sure what you expected from this: "mount sda1" is not a well
formed mount command.  You can say "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt" (replace
/mnt with wherever you want to mount the device).
