Nope.
DLT7K uses a higher compression that the DLT4K cannot read.

Unless, of course, the tape was written by the 7000 in low density
mode (i.e. in DLT4000 format).

1. Reading a QIC-24 tape in a QIC-150 tape drive

 I am tryin' to read a QIC-24 tape, which contains Oracle v6.0.36, in a Sun QIC-150
 drive.  Can this be done?

 The QIC-150 drive is the only tape drive connected to a SS2 running SunOS 4.1.1.
 The tape has been rewound with "mt -f /dev/nrst0 rew" and there is a tar file on it.

 I type:

    tar xvf /dev/nrst0

 and it comes back with...

    tar: read error: I/O error

  Could it be that the tape is just bad?

  I also tried "tar xvf /dev/nrst8" (which someone suggest I try), but that also did
  not work.

  Thanks in advance.
