Arzeno Fabrice emailed me a link to his page, which contains audio-capable firmware for the Sony SDT9000 drive. It seems that interest in audio-capable DAT drives is alive and well. Good find, Arzeno.

Added a little pizzaz to the old, boring web pages. Fixed a few broken links.

More news from Max - In early 1997, Seagate sold the drive with audio firmware 5.63 (CTD8000-SSP or Con4326NP/A, Part-Number 710002-011) to everyone. You may find this information useful if you are trying to get support from Seagate for your audio-capable drive.
5 May 2000
Max from Germany tells me that in the past, he had bought a 4326 drive with non-audio firmware, sent it to Seagate (I presume in Germany) and they flashed it with audio firmware for him. He also tells me that Seagate has been known to send out audio firmware upgrades to customers with audio-capable drives. See more info from Max on the Background page.
