Current digital camcorders can save approximately 13 GB of data on those tiny DV cartridges at a speed of 3.6 MB/sec. That's faster than most DAT streamers which only work at 1 MB/sec or less. dvbackup can not use all of the data, but 10 GB should be good enough for everyone.
To bring the data on tape, you have to use an additional utility, called dvconnect, which is included in libdv-bin.
dvbackup for Debian ------------------- * dvbackup depends on rsbep, a useful error correction algorithm. On other architectures that i386 you have to use rsbepC, the somewhat slower version implemented in pure C, instead of rsbep. * Your system and the tool you use to generate the backup stream (tar for example) should be able to provide 3.6 MB/sec _sustained_ datarate.
