K260 internal tape drive installation

Hi, it is time to replace the internal DDS2 tape drive from my K260. Does anyone have any documentation detailing the correct steps required to perform this surgery on a K260 ?

TIA,

Re: K260 internal tape drive installation

It's trivially easy. Goober Pyle could do it 15 minutes. It takes longer to shutdown and startup than it does to replace the drive. Remove the entire internal bay from the front and the rest will be obvious. Make sure that you match the jumpers / DIP switch settings on the drive itself with the original unit.

If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
