     Hi Bill,
     Try the CTAPE command. This stands for 'condition tape', and will
wind the tape one way, then wind it back. If that works, then the
ERASETAPE command will initialize your tape for storing data. The REWIND
command will take you to the first data block.
     If you get any STALL errors, the 'rubber wheel' is probably slipping.
