LTO Tape Drive / Media Compatibility Matrix
Posted by Andre Kuehnemund on 12 November 2014 15:42

LTO tape drives can read/write media of the same generation , as well as of the prior generation. LTO drives can read only tapes two generations back. For example, a LTO-6 tape drive can read & write LTO-6 & LTO-5 media. It can read only LTO-4 media - but not write to them.

Please refer to the following compatibility matrix on Tandberg's web site:
