Tape backup reader for old 3M DC-2120 data cartridges?

I have some 3M DC-2120 (and DC 2120 Ximat) 120MB data cartridge disks from probably over 10 years ago.

Anyone know where I can find a data cartridge reader, and some some backup software that might be able to read from them?

I have no idea what software I originally used for backup - do I need the same software? Any help would be appreciated.

More about tape backup reader 2120 data cartridges
  1. I believe that the StorageWorks DAT 40 can read that format, Symantec Varitas be able to read restore for you as well.
  2. For what I know (I used that tapes in the past) the only drives able to read them are the old FloppyTape and IDE Irwin and Travan drives.
    I currently have only a DC-2080 capable one, maybe you can have luck in surplus stocks.
    Software... REAL DOS or linux, no others if you only find a FloppyTape.
  3. I have an old Colorado Trakker 250 mb tape drive we used for backup. It records and reads the DC 2120 Tapes. We used it to back up our data from 1994 to 1997.

  6. I have a Conner parallel port minicartridge drive with user manuals, user program on 3 1/2" floppy disks and four 120 MB cartridges. Power cord is included and can supply a parallel connection cord if needed.

    Would you ship to Canada, and do you know if the software would be able to read a backup made through Colorado software? Thanks,
