I transferred all my old DATs (that I care about) to hard drives maybe 3-5 years ago.  Tapes only dated back to 2000, so 15-18 years old.  I don't run any checks on them for errors, but i don't hear anything to tell me otherwise.  I always used Sony DDS tapes.  Not "Actual" DAT tapes.  Did any of you do that too?  I had read/heard back in the early 2000s that DDS tapes were made in a sterile environment, and DAT tapes were not.  And the DDS tapes were cheaper.

I don’t think the manufacturing method of audio grade was any different than DDS. DDS were certainly cheaper and there’s a possibility they could’ve used higher grade tape but i’ve never seen any evidence of this.
most people used them because 90meter/3hoyr audio dats weren’t available
