I would like to know how often I should replace my cleaning cartridge, i know there is a limit to the amount of cleaning I can use it for.

I also want to know how long is a tape good for, I am having slow transfer rates and I am thinking it is due to bad tapes. I would like a guideline on how often I should replace these tapes.
