A tape drive is a removable storage device that reads and writes data stored on a magnetic tape or a punched tape. Tape streamer drives are used for recording and reproducing digital data to and from a magnetic tape serving as a recording medium held in a tape cassette. A data storage tape drive system generally includes a data storage tape cartridge selectively engaged with a tape drive mechanism. A data storage tape cartridge generally consists of an outer shell or housing maintaining at least one tape reel and a length of magnetic storage tape. The tape drive mechanism also includes transducers, such as a magnetic read/write head, for interacting with and recording data to, or reading data from, the storage tape.
