90m are 90 meter tapes or in other words 3 hour tapes. 

90minute tapes  are a ok fine in any deck.

I believe 90 minutes tapes are about 45 meters long .   but audio based tapes are measured in minutes not tape length

DDS or computer back up tapes are measured in tape lenght or data capacity. 

TMYK !

depends on your deck, most D8/D7/M1 users won't use them because the belief is that the motors in the smaller dats are not strong enough to pull 90's so the motors wear out prematurely, on the other hand many DAP1 users like myself absolutely love 90 meters, we just press record/play and forget about it until the show is over and rarely have to switch out the 90's for another blank, sure makes things easy and avoids missed songs/cuts during recording

yea, what he said.  I only seem to use 90's.  Thats what i have, so thats what goes to the shows with me.  the ease of having the extra hour on it, man its nice...  good luck man
