Abstract

A magnetic media memory device, such as a tape, disk pack or cartridge, may be made more impervious to the attack of the environment by the use of a dispenser containing a vapor phase inhibitor fastened inside the enclosure containing the media. The cartridges and packs may be removable or not, so long as their enclosure defines a controllable area.
