Hello

I have an internal HP Ultrium Drives 448 running LTO tapes, This Evening  when I came in it had chewed up the tape completely. Question
Should I pull the tape out? or is there another way of rid the media tape? . The  media came out after holding the reset button for 10 second, but I see  all the tape inside the drive?

HELP

You are probably going to have to disassemble the drive if the cartridge is out but tape remains in the drive.

I guess you'll already have looked at HP's advice sheet

Thanks for closing the question - I'm guessing from the grading that my suggestion wasn't a lot of help - what did you end up doing to fix it?

At least you have plenty of spares :)

Do you mind if I change the grade?  It does look like it was the correct advice.
