read/write compatibility bitween DLT1 1280 and DLT8000

Hi,

How to make so that cartdrige DLT IV can be read/write compatible for DLT8000 and DLT1 1280?

Normally these devices use the same media that is DLT tape IV, but the pb I have is that the cartdrige written on DLT1 cannot be read on DLT8000 and vis versa.

According to HP writeup to use the tape on a different format you have to deguasse the tape to clear it. Otherwise you will get a write-protect error.
