I cannot batch-download ".seed" files -- even if indicating "Full Seed" in the request form, data are sent in files with "*.tar.mseed". How can I read these? My rdseed (versoin 5.3.1) will only read ".seed" files. Can I submit my *.tar.mseed files to an online tool that will send back ascii (the way rdseed does)? Please advise!

The full SEED format has been retired. See this article for more information:
We are still working on updating a few tools to reflect this change; in many cases the tool will fall back when things go wrong hence results like yours, if it fails to build a SEED file it will give the "next best thing" ie. the base miniSEED volume.
