DLT7000 vs. VS80

Hi:

Technical specifications for DLT1 VS80 tape drives say they can not read DLT IV tapes recorded by DLT7000 drives. However, they can read DLT IV tapes recorded in DLT4000 tape drives. Then, the question is: is it possible anyway to make a DLT7000 to record a tape in the native 20GB format used for DLT4000, so this tape can be read by a VS80 unit? Thanks in advance for your comments.

That can only be possible if you can able to â APPENDâ another data files this time after backing up from DLT7000 (in 20 native mode) back to DLT4000 for

That would be an excellent question to e-mail Quantum: www.quantum.com.
