> So I'm wondering if temperature has any affect on media readability.
You walk a very dangerous line with condensation reading cold media, though.
It has been my experience that mag tapes shed more if they are warm, so after
baking, I let them return to room temperature in the tape reading room, which
is dehumidified to as low as the dehumidifier will go (< 35%)
