We've recently taken delivery of a 5G Exabyte tape, and I was hoping for
some battle stories from anyone else who had used them, particularly
We've been using the old 2.3G drives for some time, and have had no major
problems using the standard Sony 8mm tapes (which cost us in the region of
$12, compared to about $40 for an Exatape.) However with the 5G drives I
am somewhat wary of the Sony tapes. Has anyone got any opinions or had
any experience using non-Exatapes in the 5G drives?
Thanks. Email me, and I will post a summary to the net.
