Classic Computer Fans,
My IBM 9406-270 came with an internal MLR1 tape drive. I recently acquired
a tape to test it with. I was able to initialize the tape and save/restore
a small test library without errors. I ran a read/write reliability test
and that failed. It said it was a 95% chance that it's a hardware problem
and a 5% chance it's a media problem. The drive is asking to be cleaned.
I'm hoping that it's a media problem or that the drive just needs to be
cleaned. Does anyone have an MLR/SLR cleaning cartridge and/or any MLR1
media to spare?
What's the definition of a legacy system? One that works!
