Hello,

My client has a stock of older DDS 60M tapes. These have backups written to them by Maynard Maynstream software. They said the drive was a MaynStream 1300  External DDS-1 1.3GB DAT.

They would like to restore from those tapes.

I was considering an Surestore/StorageWorks DAT 24/24x6, similar to http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Superstore-DAT-24X6-C1559B-Tested-C15598-/331457560544?hash=item4d2c68ffe0:g:4ZgAAOSw2s1UwWZG

According to http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-lpg50457, the DAT 24/24x6 can read and write DDS1.

If I get the drive, what else do I need? I think...
- SCSI adapter.
- 3rd party program?
- ?

Is this possible to restore using built-in Windows? Or, what 3rd party program to use?

You'd need the original software the backup was made with.

Agree with rindi.  Backup formats are not intercompatible.  Without the original software that the backups were made with, there's no point in even thinking about the hardware.  Locate a copy of the software first.
