  1. #1 LTO3A deck??? 
    I have some red one footage that is of historical significance and it only exists on LTO3A tapes. Does anyone own or have access to an LTO3A deck? Have no clue if these are even around anymore. Also I believe a Cache-A Prime-Cache LTO4 is backwards compatible and can read 3A tapes. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You can use an LTO-3, 4 or 5 drive to read LTO-3 tapes. So should be quite easy to locate a suitable drive. Do you know the format used when writing the tapes ? Hopefully they are written in a TAR format which can be read using a variety of software including our YoYotta LTFS macOS app.
