[PLUG] stating a tarball on a NAS device..problems

Hello All

I have several huge 20GB or so tarballs that are NFS mounted onto my local system gratis of a remote NAS device..

Every single time never fails, on my first attempt when I issue the tar tvf dan.tar to see the contents..it never fails I get this type of message>>
[chemdb tuscon]$ tar tvf Dan_v_new.tar
tar: Dan_v_new.tar: Cannot read: Input/output error
tar: At beginning of tape, quitting now
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

BUT..when I immediately repeat the command..I can see the contents of the tarball no problem as seen below

[chemdb@tuscon]$ tar tvf Dan_v_new.tar
drwxr-xr-x 31306/user      0 2005-08-08 10:47:50 Dan_v_new/
-rw-r--r-- 31306/user 6783256 2005-08-02 13:29:56 Dan_v_new/SA.mol2

What is this behavior indicative of?  I have a terrible time writing to the same NAS device..ftps take forever..
Any clues on how to address this would be quite helpful..
