Dat Drive Problem

by oliviu In reply to Dat Drive Problem

The head of the DAT drive automatically adjust the gap to the tape based on the tape characteristics. A tape drive using one type of tapes may eject other types, it may eject even the same type if they are newer. A possible fix recommended by one ofthe tape drive producer is to insert the new type of tapes couple of times (5-10 times) allowing the head to adjust itself.
