    Wasn't sure where to put this - as it doesn't really fall into any catergory, Mods please move if appropriate! :D

    I need to restore some data from a tape(s) from 1999 - all the data is housed on one of these: http://www.sony.co.uk/biz/product/sto-d8---mammoth/qg112m/overview

    Does anyone know what will read this sort of media, and if it's even possible to buy them from a retailer? (I need to get it invoiced for the company, so i can't use ebay etc)

    Or does anyone have one that i can borrow for a week or so!? :mrgreen:

    You need a DAT drive, what specific one I don't know.
