Question about Quantum SDLT 320 External LVD (000003616772) Super DLT Tape Drive
I have a Quantum SDLT 320 Tape drive. The tape will not eject, the drive runs then clicks then I get the flashing lights of death and then it starts all over again. Retrospect says the drive is empty and the drive will not eject.
OPEN YOUR DRIVE REMOVE THE FRONT PANEL AND COVER, CHECK IF THE GUIDE TIPE IS FREE INTO THE BACK IMPULSOR, IF IS THIS TRUE YOU ARE ABLE TO ROTATE THE RIGHT SIDE GEAR CAREFULY WHITH A LITLE TOOL, ROTATE UNTIL THE TAPE EJECT.

Turn off the tape drive. (Switch in the back of the unit. Wait 2 minutes and then turn unit back on. Tape drive should issue a write data command and then rewind the tape. After rewind completes the tape should eject. If it does not eject after rrewind completes than try holding the eject button for 5 seconds to attempt a "force eject"
Note: Do not repeatedly press the eject button as this can cause damage to the tape and the tape drive.
