I’m facing the problem of backing up recordings from R Dat tapes before playback machines disappear completely and I wonder whether anyone on the list has a neat way of copying recordings from a large number of R Dat tapes to a computer hard drive.   An ideal solution would be a piece of software that reads the time and date header at the beginning of each recording on the tape and then uses this in the file name.


Any help much appreciated.
