I really don't know why that would be. /proc/scsi/scsi is part of the /proc pseudo
filesystem. The fact that that "file" is empty indicates to me that there's something
fairly fundamentally wrong with your SCSI driver setup.

Does this happen when the system is newly booted? Does the same happen if the tape drives
are disconnected from the SCSI bus?
