I have two HP82161A Cassette drives that have not been used for many years. When trying to read the cassettes both seem to communicate with my HP41C but both drives dispay "DRIVE ERR" when tring to format or read from the cassettes. Can anyone help or does anyone know how I can get one/both repaired?
