8mm 112m Tape as Hi-8 Video?

Post by Thomas Wee » Tue, 24 Nov 1998 04:00:00

Hi all...

I know this is a really strange request.. but I figured some of you old timer
admins would know...

Can you use a standard 4G 8mm 112m "D8" metal tape be used safely with a Hi-8
cam corder?

The density holes on the back of the cassette seem to be the same... But I was
not sure if noted the exact same formulation that Hi-8 tapes use.. or if
formulation was even the most important variable...?

1. Exabyte 112M 8mm Tapes: Good Source?

I bought a cheap brand of tapes for my Exabyte drive and am now
regretting it, as two out of twenty have been rejected so far.
I'd like to switch to Exabyte tapes. Does anyone know where to
go for the lowest prices? I need about twenty to cover daily,
weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual backups.
