Confusion about backup tape formats
Aug 14, 2011, 4:34 PM
I am trying to work out what some old tape cartridges are but a lot of confusion about formats. First I though they were QIC now they could be Ditto according to wiki.
Look at the top photo and the one on the left looks like what I have but they look the same as each other.
I am also looking for a drive to read them and have a large QIC tape to, I think.
Any good ideas or advice about this?

Well I have just got hold of a segate stt20000a.
Only problem is can't get a driver for 98se and just can't seem to find them. No driver for xp, as it works.
Now I need some software so I can try and read the the tapes.
So can someone at least recommend some software. Free would be best. I don't need to back up, only read the data from the tapes.
