Can anybody tell me the difference between DDS-3 and DDS-4 data tapes? Both are 4mm.

Are they interchanagable?

Many Thanks

The difference is 25 metres click here . Are they interchangeable, I'd assume so as the cartridge is the same. But may be worth checking with your drive manufacturer to be absolutely sure.

Hi Thanks for that.

I've just tried a DDS-4 in a DDS-3 tape drive and it read it for a few seconds then spits it out?
