Does ftape support 700 Mb units

Does ftape support 700 Mb units

Post by Nick Wrig » Wed, 29 Mar 1995 21:15:42



Ftape support for 120Mb and 250Mb units (Colorado, Iomega etc) is well
documented on my Linux 1.1.59 Slackware 2 system (ftape HOWTO etc.)

My question is,

Does ftape support the new 350 and 700 Mb units and if so which ftape/Linux
versions do I need.

If not I guess I'll have to buy the 250Mb item 'cos I sure can't afford
to buy a DAT (sorry its DDS these days !) tape drive.

Thanks for any info

Nick

1. ftape support for Colorado DJ-25 "Jumbo 700" ?

Hello,

I consider a colorado Streamer for backup under linux.
I read the Ftape-HOWTO, and it says that ftape sipport Q3010, (Q40, Q80) etc
drives. Because the DJ25 is a Q3010 drive I guess it should work.

But before I buy the device I would prefer if  someone could say that
the streamer actually works.

So does anybody use a Colorado Dj25 Jumbo 700 (340/680 Mbyte) ?

Thanks
Rainer
