2. before recording your lession (clean your tape R/P head for remoeing dusts and all)
3.if not ok replace your tape R/P head witrh new one.

No imation brand is known for problems but maxell usually work great i suggest cleaning the cd burner try compressed air can spray out the cd burner with the door open you may have dust on the laser lens...
Well, it's always good to know the exact cause. Your post may help others. I deal in media issues all the time in the data processing world. Though not always the cause, it is unwise to at least examine the media when the hardware won't load it, and try others to certify the hardware functionality.
If your tape isn't actually broken why don't you try loading it and immediately fast-forwarding it past the defect? It should load fine a couple of feet into the tape. You may miss the beginning of your program but it won't be a total loss.
maxell or tdk (which is hard to find now)....if your reel is 7 inch you want 1800 ft, normal bias (lo noise hi output) tape (for 10 inch you will use the 2400 ft) ....anything longer your tape will be dragging (both while recording and playing) hope this is helpful...feel free to rate
1). Remove the five screws from top half of cassette shell. If the cassette shell halves are glued together, very carefully split the shell with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Maneuver the screwdriver around the shell to break its seal. Avoid getting cut or damaging internal components of cassette.
2).Carefully lift off the top half of the cassette shell.
3). Pull the head if the tape from the left reel.
4). cut-off the damaged edge, and attached a peice of sctoth tape to the shining side of the tape, and leave about 1/2 inches of scotch tape beyond the head of the recording tape.
5). trim the sctoch tape using single edge of the sctoch tape razor or X-Acto knife to the same width as the recording tape.
6). carefully insert and tape the head of the recording tape to the right reel. and manually wind the tape till the recoding tape is flat to the front of the recoding pad.
7). carefully close the top shell, make sure not to pinch the tape. use your finguer trun the right reel, make sure the tape winds freely.
8). secured the top with screws.
Have you taken a look at the edge of the tape? tracks 1 and 2 on a cassette are usually next to the edge and you may have a bad batch of tapes that have the edge damaged.
Another possible but not a likley problem might be the tape is out of spec. for the width, and your heads MAY have a little wear from use, and are trying to act like tape guides. If the tape is slightly wider than the grove worn in the head, the tape would be lifted at the edge and not make contact to the head.
It is not electronic as you have diagnosed this with other tapes.
Give it a try and see!
As with all tape related recording equiptment, the path the tape follows in your machine will collect debris which will interfere with the synchronizing playback signals originally recorded on our tape when first recorded. The "ROLLING" is the loss of those synchronizing signals and the "skewing" of the tape where the heads are now reading between the recorded information causing noise at the top or bottom or throughout the entire screen.
SOLUTION for about 85% of machines exhibiting this problem is CLEANING and inspection of tape path alignment best done with a calibrated playback tape for accuracy.
HOPE this helps . . .
