Question: 

Can I use the TAPECOPY function of Copycat to copy from one media type to a different media type?

Environment:  

Copycat 12.0

Answer: 

No, the TAPECOPY control statement requires that the input and output media be the same. To be able to change the media type use the FILECOPY control statement.
