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

Any and all opinions expressed by me are my own and not those of my employer



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


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) ?
