Travan Tape Drive Repair

3M Corporation developed the Travan tape technology which is backward compatible with older QIC tape formats.  Travan is an evolution of QIC mini cartridge.   The technology uses an 8mm wide tape that is 750' long.   Travan first appeared in the 1990s and was quickly standardized by the Quarter Inch Cartridge (QIC) Consortium.
