    could be dirty heads, the easiest way to check is to play a cleaner tape on them. you'd get better results over firewire though in any case.

    The heads are probably dirty because the tape is shedding. In fact, disintegrating. A lot of these metal formula cassettes are reaching end-of-readable-life now.
