Reading D.A.T. Audio Tape

Reading D.A.T. Audio Tape

Post by Sorin Cioc » Wed, 27 Sep 1995 04:00:00



HI,

We use a 5-Gbyte 4mm Tape Desktop Backup connected to a Spark 20 Station.  We
sample audio data on a Panasonic D.A.T.  Does an interface exist to read audio
signal from D.A.T. tape with Tape Desktop Backup to digitally transfer audio
data to hard disk?

1. DAT TAPE DRIVES: Wangtek can't read HP DAT tapes

I have both:
WANGTEK   Model: 6130-HS           Rev: 4G16
HP        Model: C1533A            Rev: 9503

Neither unit can read tapes created by the other machine. Is there a way
to create tapes that can be read by both machines?

I use a program called TAPEDISK in DOS and Windows. Tapes created on
either machine are readable by the other.

BTW, is there a program similar to DOS TAPEDISK in the UNIX world?
TAPEDISK makes a tape drive appear to be one large harddisk.
