One of my schools has ordered the wrong AIT tapes, unfortunately they unwrapped them before I found out and now the supplier is refusing to take them back.

Does anyone have need, or know of anyone that would accept unused but unwrapped ofiical Sony TAIT2-80N 80Gb Native\208Gb Compressed tapes. These tapes do not have the memory chip installed. They cost 24.34 each but offers are welcome.

Alternatively, if anyone knows how to make the drive use these tapes that would be ideal - the drive accepts the tape but within a minute or so ejects it again. I assume because it can't detect the chip. The drive is a Sony SDX-560V.

Thanks in advance,
