Its not easy to remove the stuck tape as it require you to

1. Remove the sled from the library
2. Remove the drive from the Sled.
3. The Drive Part would be more complicated.

I sugguest you send it to a tape drive repair centre and let them service it for you.

How do I take apart an HP external lto drive?


If you never did, or don't have a manual, I would not do this. I think if you have the correct tork screw drivers and Philips screwdrivers you could open the drive. If it is to remove a tape, this is as far as you can go. If you disassemble the drive, I don't think you can get the timing correct. It would make the drive worthless.

Hi I need to manually remove a tape from a quantum 3 superloader. The tape appears to be stuck in the drive


Hi Adrian

I would suggest sending it to www.tape-drive-repair.com for them to fix as once the tape has been removed you will still probably have the original fault that caused the tape to get stuck.

If you do try and remove the tape yourself be extremely careful as those drives are very easy to break the load mech and tape leader assy if you dont know exactly how to remove them.

Bear in mind the tape may not actually be stuck though!

Try powering off and on the loader with it disconnected from the server just in case it is your backup software not letting the drive eject the media as this is a common issue (where the software tells the drive it is using the tape (or hasnt finished with it) and stops the eject button from accidental operation)

Hi,

if you "have not" using Backup Software (e.g. Symantec Backup Exec, CA), you can try this IBM LTO-4 driver for Win2K.
