This Maxell DDS HS-4 (4mm) cleaning tape (product code 186990) is compatible for use with DDS-1, 2, 3 & 4. Also works with DAT72 and DAT160. The HS-4 DDS cartridge is good for about 40 cleanings. It has a different tape cleaning formulation that is very effective at trapping and removing accumulated debris. Recommended for use whenever the cleaning lamp lights up or alternatively, you could use the Maxell HS-4 186990 on a regular basis (every 25 hours of use or for every 30 GB of data transfer). The necessity of cleaning tapes such as the 186990 is justified because your tape drives will eventually be covered by a layer of grime and dust which will prevent its effective functioning. Cartridges (such as the 186990) are necessary even if your drive features self-cleaning capabilities.
