Data /dev/rStp0 giving error

I do my backups using the following command

find / -print |cpio -ocv >/dve/rStp0

It has been working fine for ages and suddenly I am getting this error :-

Reached end of medium on output
If you want to go on type device/file name when ready

This happens after you press enter when inputting the find command for backups. It find the directory that you want to backup and scrolls the first list of files up the screen and then this error pops up on the bottom of the screen.

I have tried resetting the device, cleaning the heads, changing the tapes and using tapes with more space all to no avail . Hellp !!!!

It sounds like, you try to put more data on the tape then fits.
If you run `du -sk` from / as root, you get the block count of all data in 1024-byte blocks.

In the SUN man page of cpio i found;

Quote:
Note that for multi-reel archives, dismount the old volume, mount the new one, and continue to the next tape by typing the name of the next device (probably the same as the first reel). To stop, type a RETURN and cpio will end.
So cpio has multivolume support.
