I just had a similar tape. Keep cleaning heads of course. I also had to take off cover of tape player bay and hand crank with a thick paper clip to keep tape going. Not a real solution, but I was able to copy whole sides without stopping much this way. I also reloaded into new shells with new lub sheets, didn't seem to make a difference. Any other ideas, many more of these to do for me in the future?

I have a 120 minute cassette tape that simply will not play in any
cassette player we have because the tape doesn't move inside the
machine. I have already swithched out the shell twice and some other
unorthodox tricks I am interested in seeing what kind of ideas everyone
here may have I can try to get this thing to play. Of course as luck
would have it it is a one of a kind with no available copy. All replies
