Supported Media Types
Revised February 19, 2007
The following guidelines pertain to the media types which can be received, processed and created by CU*Answers when converting new credit union clients to CU*BASE, and for other purposes when sending or receiving data on a physical media between third-party vendors.
These guidelines are published to avoid delays in processing that would result from an incompatible file media type being sent to CU*Answers.
The following media types are supported by CU*Answers:
- 8 mm (millimeter) tape
5GB or 7GB (gigabyte)
- 9 track tape
1600 bpi or 6250 bpi (bytes per inch)
CU*Answers has the following media types available on the iSeries:*
- 3590 tape
- Ultrium 1 100/200GB capacity
- Ultrium 2 200/400GB capacity
- Email or FTP
If encrypted with PGP or GPG
If none of these options are available from the vendor or the CU in-house system, the Conversion Coordinator will work with conversion programmers to find a method for compatible data exchange or alternative solutions.
