Sun DDS3 tape drive question. . .

Post by John M. Modransk » Thu, 17 Jan 2002 01:49:16



I have a Sun DDS3 tape drive (12/24GB), model 599-2107-01.  Will the standard 120m tapes allow the 24GB compressed capacity (with H/W compression turned on), or, do I need the longer 160m tapes?

OTTOMH, DDS1 90m will get you 2/4GB, DDS2 120m will only get you 4/8GB.
The DDS3's are actually only 125m but you still need them to get full
DDS3 capacity.

Also, please wrap your lines.

You can get 12 GB on the 120-125m tape without compression, and about
24 GB with compression.

I have a different question, though - my "Clean" light is on and the
cleaning tape won't slide in.  There is no tape in the drive, and "mt
offline" doesn't help.  I've tried cycling power and holding down the
eject button for several seconds, all to no avail.  I'm trying to
clean with a Sony 5CL 5m DDS computer grade cleaning cartridge.  What
obvious step am I missing?

Thanks,
Jim
