I too would be interested in responses, as we have recently been having
the same problem. I think it might have started when we moved our media
checkout to the same place as our book checkout.

Hello, everyone. We are experiencing a problem with our VHS movies in
that they are checked out fine but come back with complaints of tracking
problems. Our desensitizers at the circ desk sit rather closely together
(one for VHS videos, one for all else), and the current workflow does
have the videos placed rather closely to the other machine. Does
anybody know about a minimum separation of space between the 2
desensitizers, or how closely we can allow a video to be placed to the
other machine?
