    I know the TR-4s are used in the STT8000A tape drives. Are the TR-3
    compatible with that drive as well?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ok thank you very much for the reply. That's what I was afraid of.
    Now back to the drawing board. :)

    Thanks again,

  3. Hi Tom:

    The answer might not be so simple, depending on what you want to do.
    Sometimes newer drives can read older tapes for restoring data. I don't
    know what problem you are trying to solve.

    Asking Technical Support is best. Seagate handed off tape drive support
    to Certance; now I see Certance was acquired by Quantum...

    I would start there if you want to dig deeper.

    Good luck,
