Question about 3M Imation Travan Storage Media

2 Answers

How do I retrieve info. from a 3M TR-1 minicartridge?

My dad passed away and we found one these catridges with a note saying he wanted me to have it. I have no idea what's on it but needless to say we're anxious to find out and we have no idea what we need or where we can go to retrieve the data as I'm a computer novice and have never seen one of these cartridges before. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Unfortunately, no. He didn't have a computer with his belongings and we have no idea how old this cartridge is.

Hi,

Firstly. sorry to hear of your loss.

I believe you will need a Travan tape reader to access the data on the tapes.

From what i have seen, there are a few available on E**y.

Sorry i can not be of more assistance.

Best Wishes,

Karlos

It is TOTALLY possible to retrieve the contents of this tape. You'll need to do a Google search for companies that transfer data. Use "data conversion TR-1 minicartridge" for your search terms. There are several companies who can do it, but it won't be cheap. Pricing seems to assume there is something wrong with the tape/contents and the company will have to troubleshoot the tape/data to retrieve the data. When you request a bid, make it clear that that the tape is fully functional, and the data is completely accessible. You just want to transfer the data to CD.

Retriveing messages on old Mokia phone from my dad who has passed away.


Sorry, but voice message are not stored on the phone itself. They are stored by the telephone service provider and relate to the telephone number at the time. In any event, these messages are normally stored for a limited time by the provider so even if your phone number was still active (on another phone) they would likely be gone now.

My Dad just passed away and his Dr. K Phantom 3 wheel scooter won't run. When I plug the charger in, it says its fully charged. When I unplug it..it reads E..I want to donate this to a nursing home locally...


tar the batteries are probably too low to charge with the scooter charger and need to be replaced. With the charger plugged in it will indicate a full charge beacuse its reading the output of the charger but when you unplug it the batteries are too low to indicate any voltage. hope this helps you

Stop talking back,Take out the trash, clean your room,Do your homework,Tell Dad you will get all A's and 1 B on your report card.
It worked for my sons and I took off the timer.
There is another way but I'm not telling until I see your Report Card.
