I have a 160 meter cartridges but I donot have a Exabyte model 8505XL drives which are required to read the tape.

Anybody has idea how can I copy data from this tape? By the
way, dd wont work because there is not block information. Also I donot have the info how the data are copied to the tap.

If you don't have the tape dirve that can read the tapes you can't do anything about it.
