du parameters for DAT?

What are the proper du parameters for use with a Sun 4mm DAT tape?  The man
pages give parameters for everything but my DAT.  Sparc10 SunOS 4.1.3.



1. Trying to read Alpha/DU written 4mm DAT

I have a TANDBERG 4222 2.5/5Gb QIC SCSI tape drive, and it defaults to high density. (Most
funny, you get a lot of data on a 60 meg tape).

Ask the manufacturer about "density codes"?
