    I'd suggest getting the machine serviced. There could well be a rubber part that has reached the end of its life or something may need a little lubrication. I've not experienced and DAT tapes shedding and I transfer DAT's fairly regularly with a Pioneer 96KHz machine (which uses the same mechanism as the DA20).

    I did take it back to the Chief Engineer at the radio station who did a manual head cleaning and check up. I assume he'd be checking for roller/belt issues etc but I'll make sure when I pick it back up.
