Title (EN) METHODS FOR MONITORING OR ADJUSTING A TAPE DRIVE USING CONTROL DATA PACKETS
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME SERVANT A CONTROLER ET A REGLER LA POSITION D'UNE BANDE AU MOYEN DE PAQUETS DE DONNEES DE COMMANDE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for monitoring or adjusting a magnetic tape drive using central control packets (30) that are recorded on the tape (2) is presented. Central control packets (30) are used for adjusting the timing of the read head signal over the tape, adapting the reel count to that of the drive at the time the tape was recorded, and monitoring filemarks for logical tape positioning.
(FR)Procédé et système servant à contrôler et/ou à régler le positionnement d'une bande magnétique (2) au moyen de paquets de commande centraux (30) enregistrés sur la bande (2). On utilise ces paquets (30) afin de régler la synchronisation du signal de tête de lecture sur la bande, d'adapter le comptage d'enroulement à celui de l'entraînement au moment de l'enregistrement de la bande et de contrôler des repères de positionnement logique de la bande.
