what is tape format used by EDM

what is tape format used by EDM

(OP)
I have 500 tapes that were used in an EDM system. The tapes are hcart and were used by STK 9940_B tape drives. I want to use them in VERITAS NetBackup. I have checked "allow media overwrite" for ALL available types listed in the NetBackup GUI.  (ANSI,TAR,DBR,RS-MTF_1,CPIO,AOS/VS MTF BE-MTF-1 ) Hopefully the EDM format is one of them. Can anyone confirm the type?

Just because the VERITAS documentation states a certain thing does not make it a fact and that is truth.
