Old tape formats

Can anyone point me in the direction as to what drive I will need to read a DC2000 tape?
I am assuming my seagate 8.0 gig will not read it.

Regards

"Ditto" or "Travan" drive, a.k.a. "QIC40" I think.

David,

Have a look at the following URL:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=lpg11055&locale=en_US&docId=41598

This shows the "DC2000" as a QIC-40 format tape using low-density.

HTH,

Dave
