Formatting tapes with an Archive 5945 tape drive

Post by James E. Carpent » Sat, 18 Nov 1995 04:00:00



I have an Archive 5945 (QIC-24) tape drive with an Emulex MT-02
controller hooked up to my Seagate ST-01 SCSI host adapter in my PC.
(Not very modern equipment huh? ;-)

I'd like to format some QIC-24 tapes so I can make some backups
under Linux. But, AFAIK, noone has created anything that will format
tapes under Linux.

Does anyone know of any DOS software that will do the format with my
equipment??? Where can I get it???

Thanks!

Jim
