View Full Version : Tape Backup Problems

June 28th, 2007, 01:45 PM
I finally have my VAXstation3100 up and running, and after breaking down and buying a bc56h cable, I have the TSZ07 tape drive functioning properly. I'm starting to pour of tons of backups that I the lab has; some tapes I can read fine, but other report back with an error nonansi tape when I try to use the backup utility. Why exactly is the tape nonansi format, and what can I do to read a nonansi tape?
