My understanding is that the Archive SCSI DAT was used by SGI. The firmware which reads and writes to a music DAT over the SCSI bus was available from Archive at one point. I'm not sure of that any longer. One would need to aquire or write a driver which would send the appropriate SCSI commands to the drive. There has been a good bit of talk about the Antex PC card as well. It has AES/EBU or S/PDIF digital input/output so you could send your data direct to DAT via this card as well. (phone 800-338-4231) I have not tried either of these, but its a start. Steve Boker
