I'm trying to get a Wangtek 5099 to work with my MightyFrame.
Right now, the MightyFrame uses an Archive 5945, but that only reads 60Mb 9-track QIC-24 tapes. I want to read older 20Mb 4-track QIC-11 tapes, thus the attempt to switch to the Wangtek 5099, which has the physical hardware capability of reading those.
So, here's what I've discovered so far on my MightyFrame with it's original tape drive:
Motherboard -> Tape Drive Interface Board -> Archive 5945L
Motherboard -> Tape Drive Interface Board = QIC-02 interface
Tape Drive Interface Board -> Archive 5945L = QIC-36 interface

This board pictured is from a MightyFrame S/320, best we can tell. (Model CG-5140)
Without any MightyFrame hardware manuals as of yet, we can only guess what these jumpers are for. We are currently asking around. See the discussions at:
