HP introduced its rewritable disc libraries in 1989, beginning with the C1711A. This unit held 32 discs with a total capacity of 20.8 GB. The C1700A replaced the C1711A in 1990. In 1991, HP introduced the 88-disc C1704A and the 144-disc C1705A.

The belts in these units can perish with age and original HP replacements are very hard to find. Equivalent belts can be found at Small Parts & Bearings (

The long picker belt is B-MXL-0694-0060-NF (included as part of HP Part number C1700-60034) and the 'Vertical Belt' is B-MXL-0110-0060-NF (HP P/N C1700-60035).

There's another small belt that comes with the C1700-60034 but I dont have an equivalent part number for that. It can be determined by counting the number of teeth - the part number will be B-MXL-XXXX-0060-NF where XXXX is the number of teeth.
