Re: DAS9100 does anyone still remember it


Hi Raymond , I checked the capstan as I have had that problem on very old pc tape drives , the capstan roller is ok . When I looked at the cartridges I thought at first that it had reached the end of the tape and broken it but thats not the case , it never went that far before the elastic band broke .I have been try on facebook to find that hpseries80 group you mentioned but a search does not find it ?

Are you aware that very often, the polyurethane capstan covering material in these drives has crumbled or - worse - changed into a sticky chewing gum-like mass? That could explain how your drive ate the tapes.
