Forcing a clean on Sony Ait SDX-700V

Forcing a clean on Sony Ait SDX-700V

(OP)
Hi,
My Ait drive had errors and Backup Exec recommended a clean - so in went the cleaning tape and the cleaning process was completed.

There's still read errors from time to time so I want to initiate another clean - but when I load the cleaning tape it is ejected after about 30 seconds.

Does anyone know if there is a way to force a clean? - it seems the Ait drive believes it is OK and doesn't want to do another clean....

Any ideas would be greatly welcomed!

Kindest Regards

Phil Blythe

"There's still read errors from time to time so I want to initiate another clean - but when I load the cleaning tape it is ejected after about 30 seconds."

It takes less then 30 seconds for a "cleaning", so the 30 second tape eject is normal. If you still have errors, replace the tape. If after trying a couple new tapes and still have errors, suspect the tape unit is nearing death.
