Hi, has anyone come across a Victor (JVC) XD-Z909 DAT recorder. I believe they are very rare. I have one, but I don't have a copy of an owners manual. I have checked online, but there isnt a lot of information about it. Maybe because it was mainly designed for the Japanese market. I believe the JVC XD-Z1010 was similar. Hope someone can help. Thanks.

Hi, does the tape actually go around when in record mode? Also, when in record mode, are the peak meter's reading a signal? If they are and the tape is going around, the only thing I can think of is the heads need cleaning.
