Since 1985 our tape drive to PC packages have been used by data processing companies, oil and gas companies, independent data processors, and others worldwide who convert data between 9-track tape or 3480/3490 cartridges and PC.

Typical uses for 9 track and cartridge drives change through the years with seismic oil and gas exploration being one of the most popular now. We can help you choose the correct 9 track or cartridge drive to use to read in your special tapes. We ship to destinations worldwide including Canada, Mexico, and South America, as well as the Far East.

If you just have a few tapes or cartridges to read in and don't want to buy a drive take advantage of our data conversion services. Does your drive need repair? We offer repair services too.

Have a drive and a Windows® computer and simply need software? No problem, we offer software too. We carry DCX software for Windows XP/7® in addition to our own ElectroValue® brand of software for Windows 95/98/ME® and DOS® legacy systems.

Do you have 9 track tapes that have not been stored in a low humidly environment and are now sticky? We now offer precision baking which subjects the tape to a specific amount of heat at low humidity for enough time to remove the humidity in the tape substrate. We can then easily read these 9 track tapes. Check out our data conversion services.

You will have confidence when you get your drive and software from a company whose main business is tape drive to PC packages. Others simply sell drives with third party software. How well do they know someone else's software? With ElectroValue® you get software tested to work with the drives in our packages.

Many companies are moving their data processing operations from minicomputers and mainframes to PC based operations and using our 9 track and 3480/3490 packages to handle their magnetic tape conversion needs.

You can have confidence and save substantially by buying a refurbished tape drive. Thousands use our refurbished tape drive packages. Check our customer list.
