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


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.
