Question about Exabyte 220 MAMMOTH (2700061150) 8mm Tape
These drives are a right pain in the neck!
There is no easy way for an end user to remove the tapes and they are a terrible drive (certainly unless you are using a unix/linux server with all data on this server and not on another networked machine)
My suggestion would be to buy a new drive/library!
Failing that try sending the drive to www.tape-drive-repair.com who should be able to help - but these Mammoth drives are so awful they almost sent exabyte bust so i wouldnt invest too much money in keeping it going. Better to upgrade to an HP LTO4 desktop and cut your losses - Again these guys should be able to help with an upgrade
