Question about Computers & Internet
Can you detail the model No or compaq spares No for the drive - the clicking makes it sound to me like a DAT but unable to proceed without more info.
If it is a DAT (compaq used both Sony and HP mechs) try disconnecting the scsi cable from the scsi card, rebooting the drive and trying again.
If that doesnt work try a 00pt screwdriver in the manual eject point of the drive and unload manually (about 1000 turns!)
Failing that try www.tape-drive-repair.com as they are pretty good price wise for a repair / exchange
