is safe to use.
Introducing the Maxell LTO Cartridge Memory Analyzer
All LTO Cartridges contain an internal memory chip called
Cartridge Memory (CM). is chip contains vital information about the cartridge.
Maxell CM Analyzer reads this information and extracts it into special software
with a clear and concise display.

critical data with confidence
quality standards for LTO
cartridges and tape drives
Loading The Cartridge
The Maxell CM reader is approximately the same size as an LTO
cartridge. Unlike an LTO tape drive, however, the Maxell CM reader does not need
to thread the tape in order to access the CM. Just place the cartridge on top of
the reader and the display immediately shows the relevant information.
A locator feature in the frame matches a notch in the cartridge,
thereby ensuring that the cartridge is always correctly oriented.
Data displayed with the Maxell CM reader
The available data include:
- Percentage of
records in error

- Details of the

- Details of the drive(s) that the cartridge was used in
Interpreting Maxell data
It can be time consuming, tedious, and inconsistent if you try
to examine all the data in order to evaluate a cartridge. Not everyone may give each parameter
the same weight. It is more helpful to create a single score number that is automatically
and consistently calculated from all available data. MaxellScore
is a Tape Evaluation Score
ranging from 0 (very bad) to 100(very good). Within seconds you will learn if a used cartridge
meets your standards.
