 Help: Tape Backup Accessing

I am trying to write a module for Readig and Writing to a tapebackup
device on my computer. I have been successful in using the CreateFile
API to get a handle for the tape device, but am having trouble doing
anything else.

Whenever I try a PrepareTape, GetTapeStatus, or GetTapeParameters
call, I get an ErrorCode of 5 (ACCESS_DENIED) returned.

Has anyone had any luck with accessing a tape backup devices before?
