Question about Electronics - Others
Maybe you could pull the hard drive out and mount it inside a computer, and format it that way.

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!

Maybe you could remove the hard drive and install it in a computer or laptop and then use the computer to format the hard drive.
But this would totally erase the hdd and then you would have to re-install the operating system.
I believe the recovery disk that comes with the unit would re-install the OS, but I'm not sure.
Maybe contact Yamaha and ask them if this method would work.
I hope this helps you.
