Firmware failed - 1/8 G2 - Ultrium 920

I was upgrading the firmware of our Storageworks 1/8 G2 and the internal Ultrium 920.  Both said they failed.  They were working fine before the attempted firmware upgrade.  After a power cycle, the loader shows the new firmware version (even though LT&T said it failed), but it is failing to connect to the drive.  After 15-20 minutes it says the drive is ready, but then switches to a drive error.  I have seen both FB 00 and FB 01.  The drive was a good drive, so guessing the firmware is now corrupt preventing any communication to the drive.  Please tell me there is a way to recover without getting a new drive???  Can I get back to factory, flash through NIC or usb?
