What media can RADD work with?

(This list is current as of January 27, 2017.)

Still image media

  • Slides
  • 35mm film [caution: filmstrips and long film rolls are cumbersome to work with]

Audio media

Some of the playback equipment listed below is small, low-use, expensive and/or rare, and portable, ergo locked up. If you need it, please speak to Dorothea Salo in advance. Thank you!

  • Microcassettes
  • Minicassettes [player locked away]
  • Standard audio cassettes
  • Digital audio tape (DAT)
  • Alesis digital audio tape (ADAT) [caution: this machine has not yet been tested due to lack of media]
  • Sony mini-discs [player locked away]
  • 33 1/3 rpm, 45 rpm, 78 rpm vinyl records
  • Coming soon: most speeds of reel-to-reel tape (machine awaiting a final repair)

Video media

  • VHS and VHS-C tapes
  • U-Matic tapes
  • Betamax tapes
  • Betacam tapes
  • Mini-DV (camcorder) tapes
  • Hi8 tapes
  • Digital8 tapes

(RADD does not currently work with 8mm, Super8, or 16mm film. Try Holder PrintWorks. We also do not currently have DVCAM playback equipment.)

Digital media

  • Most 5.25″ floppy diskettes in most filesystems (“flippy” disks will not work)
  • 3.5″ floppy diskettes, including Mac-formatted diskettes
  • Iomega Zip disks
  • Iomega Jaz disks
  • IMation SuperDisks
  • Most hard drives

Coming soon (awaiting a working SCSI setup):
