    Since a DAT/DDS is somewhat similar to a VCR, only smaller, the problem
    is that my DAT/DDS eats tapes.

    It's a Sony DDS2 SCSI2, I tried all the cleanings like a VCR, but it
    still has some problem with loading, then ejects.

    I have an almost new Seagate DAT/DDS2 with some problem with loading,
    then ejects.

    You are using the wrong tapes? A DDS2 drive will not like a DDS3 tape
    and will exhibit this behaviour if you try to load one.

    No, I tried DDS1/DDS2 60/90/120M tapes, and it even ate the cleaning
    tapes.
    Sometimes in VCR's this may be a power supply disease, but there is no
    to switch a DAT/DDS power supply module.

    Since my electronics really sux, it may take awhile to find the problem
    from post with the same problem in VCRs

    ThanX

    It's not clear to me exactly what your symptoms are. Does the drive
    EAT (as in chew up and destroy) any tape you put in it? Or does it
    simply reject them all?
