Question about Seagate STT320000A Travan Tape Drive
What causes the main drive belt to come off the 4/8gb and 10/20 Travan tape drives
The belt is old and has stretched.

One of your tapes has gone bad. It may be knotted up inside the cartridge, so that it works for a short time before becoming to difficult for the drive to spin, popping the belt - or the belt may pop seconds after you insert it. To fix this, put the belt back on and then insert each of your tapes until you find the one that pops the belt (or just sounds obviously difficult for your drive to spin), and remove it from rotation.
Btw - I'm a field engineer for a tech company that services about 800 customers on the east cost - I see (and fix) this problem, with this drive about once a day.
