DAT160 Tape media snapping

Hi,

I have just purchased 2 by rx2660s each with a DAT160 (Q1573A) tape drive installed in an external shelf.

We use HP media in these drives.

We have now had 3 ocurrances where we press the eject button the tape rewinds and snaps. The occurances are across both drives, 1 in the one drive and 2 in the other drive.

Has anybody had similar experiences?

Kind Regards
Andrew

Snaps as in breaks.

HP have replaced the 2 drives.

Thanks
