When you say tape cleaner - something to actually clean and treat the
transport and composite materials of the actual tape media, or are you
looking for tape cleaner for the tape mechanism head? If its head
cleaner you are looking for, Radio Shack Tape Header cleaner has worked
very well on my HP and Dec 9 track drives, just let it completely
evaporate from the head before loading a tape.
