How often should I use the cleaning cartridge to clean the Sony DDS drive?

Answer:

It is recommended that the Sony DDS tape drive is cleaned either every 24 hours of drum rotation or at least once a week. The drive Status LED will begin to flash (3.5 sec ON / 0.5 OFF) after 24 hours of drum rotation to request a cleaning cartridge. The Status LED will not stop flashing until a cleaning process has taken place.
