Using an FTD Travan tape drive
The FTD Travan tape drive uses the on-board diskette/floppy disk
interface and so does not require an additional drive controller card
like most other tape drives.
The drive is designed for TR-1 or equivalent minicartridges (750 ft,
400 Mbytes). This nominal capacity can typically be doubled to 800
Mbytes by software data compression. The software required to
control the tape drive depends on your operating environment; ask
your supplier for details.
The drive can also accept QIC-80 Wide cartridges (400 ft, 208 Mbytes) and
long-length QIC-80 cartridges (307.5 ft, 124 Mbytes).
