This fellow seems to make a "something" that gives DV and Digital-8 tapes the ability to hold, according to him, around 15 GB to 17 GB of data. (Unless I read that incorrectly.) Should not the article be informative of all the ways to hold digital information for data upon consumer tape formats? Apple8800 (talk) 11:11, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
