I am NOT familiar with this (DAT) technology, but will describe a situation
and hope someone has a solution to the problem.
I am transporting a bunch of recordings to an archive. Among the recordings
are a few DAT tapes. I was told by the provider of these recordings
that there is a problem with the DAT tapes - a missing or defective SYNC signal.
They were unable to recover the data (sound recording) on these tapes.
If anyone is familiar with this problem, and knows how the recordings
can be recovered, please let me know, so I can pass the information
to the archivist.
Best wishes, Thomas.
