Re: DLT1

I dont have the techie answer in detail..
but..
the DLT1 has a lower coercivity, meaning narrower "finer" tracks -- not so heavy clumbsy writing as the DLT7000/8000 counterpart. Thus not able to get rid of prewritten "deep" tracks. Then you would need electric magnet to randomise particles again (a degausser)

hope this helps at least?
