Hi,
You can try to use this drive as a ordinary Quantum DLT.

How are you going to use this drive, with standard OS features (as tar or cpio) or with a backup application (as OmniBack). If standard OS you can try ordinary install (I don't find instructions for DLT8000 but I don't think it is different from DLT7000).

If you use a backup application there is perhaps instructions in documentation for this application.
