The floor edger did this (pic). I noticed this long streak about 6 inches wide that was slightly more noticeableName:  20141130_205658-001.jpg

Size:  9.1 KB than the passing I did with the drum sander. Before I stain my floor next weekend is there a way I can fix this so its not this noticeable ? I did 36, 60, and 80 with the drum sander and just 36 with the power edger. Shall I use my belt sander to fix ?

It looks like you didn't sand enough with the edger. Do not use a belt sander! you are more apt to do damage than make it better. You could also use an orbital sander to finish it off.
