Tape Drive Inspection Procedure
Tape Cartridge Inspection Procedure
Before using any tape cartridge, perform the following inspection procedure.
Check the following:
- Exterior casing for visible damage.
- Shake the cartridge; any rattling sound indicates internal damage.
- Open the cartridge door and verify the proper leader position (see 'Tape Leader Check').
Do not touch the tape leader or tape. Body oils that adhere to a tape can cause the heads to degrade.
If damage is apparent, do not use the cartridge.
