WORM media

The standard read/write media are incompatible with the WORM feature so a specially formatted WORM tape cartridge is required, see Figure 1. Each WORM cartridge has a unique, worldwide cartridge identifier (WWCID), which comprises the unique CM chip serial number and the unique tape media serial number. For more information about how to choose and purchase the appropriate WORM tape cartridges for your tape drive, see the section on ordering media supplies.
