Question about HP StorageWorks DAT 72 Tape Drive
When running backup, the tape actually jambs up in the tape drive. We have tried several different tapes with the same result. It's been happening for the past few days. Any ideas other than buying a new one? They are really expensive.
My driver version is 126.96.36.199
Besides buying a new one, if you have the knowledge, you can try to open the tape drive and clean it from the dust it may have. You should also clean all the rubber roller's that thouch the tape (when it is inserted) with a cotton swab with some alcohol.
