Hello,

About a year ago, I purchased a like-new Iomega Ditto 2 GB external tape drive from eBay. Unfortunately, despite never being used before, it didn't work. Well, since then, I've learned a lot about how old tape-based machines worked. I opened it up and discovered that the belt had completely melted. I cleaned it up as best I could, but if I want to restore it to working order (which I do), I need to know the radius and thickness of the belt it needs, as well as how it actually goes on. (And no, I'm not talking about the belts on the tape cartridges; I'm talking about the belt on the machine itself.) Google has brought me nothing; the Ditto drive seems to be relatively obscure. This is why I'm posting here, in the hopes that someone might have one, know what I'm talking about, and be able to help me.
