DLT IV Tapes

I need to restore two DLT IV tapes that are ~5 years old. I do not know what size the tapes are. If I buy a device that reads 80gig tapes will it also read smaller tapes? Suggestions?

Re: DLT IV Tapes

Hi, you can find the compatibility between tapes and drives here:

DLT IV means 40 GB native (80 GB with 2:1 compression)

Most DLT and SDLT drives can read that media.
