1. Stupid Questions: Sun 8mm dump tape =>AIX 8mm dump tape

Ok, I'm sure this is a RTFM type question but I don't have the time
or access.

I have an 8mm tape dumped using an Exabyte on a Sun and I'd like to
read it on an RS6000 also with an Exabyte 8mm drive.  I tried
to restore -i on rmt1 to see if I could read the tape at all.  Of course
I don't remember the error message I got but it was something like
" not a dump tape", e.g. 'I don't know what the f*ck this is but
its not a tape format I can read'.  


3. How can I get the IBM RS6000's 8mm tape to read other 8mm tapes ?

4. Multiple IPs - How do I?

5. using 14gb 8mm tape drive to write tapes for 2gb tape drive

6. Soundcards in FreeBSD4.0 - SB Live OK?

7. dump on one 8mm tape drive not readable by another 8mm drive ?

8. Automatic Email Responses

9. 8MM and 4MM Tapes/Tape Drives

10. Exabyte 8mm tapes on other x86 supported tape units???

11. What kind of 8mm tape for 14 GB tape driver

12. Plea for help in NYC area - need cleaning tape for 8MM tape drive
