Default DATa

I've been trying to restore old backups
using DATa on a G4 OS9.2 With AM3 and PT5.1

When i play the DAT tape to restore
i get the "reading header" message, but nothing happens.

any suggestions ?

I know i can record the audio files to Protools,
but i'd like to restore the entire session

I'm not following totally:

is it a data DAT/DSS or an audio DAT?

Default Re: DATa

DATa was for reading audio not sessions. you need mezzo to do the sessions.

Question Re: DATa

DATa could actually back up non-audio files, though it wasn't recommended since it didn't do any verification.

Did you ever check the headers when you did the backup?

Is it a single file or batch backup?
