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
  • CD-ROM
  • 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.
