Confusion about backup tape formats Tags: Backup Storage Last response: August 15, 2011 9:07 PM in Storage Share p75 August 14, 2011 4:34:39 PM Hi. 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. See here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iomega_Ditto_drive and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarter-inch_cartridge 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? Thanks. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/c...

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. p75 August 15, 2011 9:07:36 PM For god sake, not much help on here is there. Tried symantec Backup Exec an no use plus to complicated. Thanks for the no help. sarcastic: Better try another forum. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources What about Tape Backup Drives?
