9-Tracks Drives, especially Overland Data

A while back I managed to get a nice little Overland Data OD5612 SCSI
9-Track tape drive. I'm looking into getting it put somewhere that I can
actually use it should I want (well that and I needed the spot it was for a
couple of S-Bus expansion chassis).

Anyway I just noticed something. It's got a selector switch on it for
1600bpi and 6250bpi. Am I correct in assuming that this means that I can
only read those two formats?
