A tape guide includes a compliant and a rigid section on one flange of the guide with a reference flange on the opposing side of the guide. The compliant section resiliently holds the tape medium against the reference flange. The rigid guides are provided with the compliant section to prevent the edge of the medium from riding under the compliant guide.
