Drive Type

I have LTO-5 3280FC in 2 different configurations. One is a part#602100-001 and the other

is a 602101-001 these are HPE drives not OEM and the obvious difference is the carrier and 

the firmware is for an EML or an ESL. I would like to use the 602100-001 drive in the 602101-001

configurration and vice a versa besides changeing the carrier can you update the firmware.

Re: Drive Type

Im just curious why. Is it specifically the image because obviously the drives are the same.

Re: Drive Type

its all down to firmware, the library will compare whats on the drive to what its looking for. when u see the drive through HP LTT it will show the firmware and part of the firmware is the personality, so your EML drive should end EML and ESL drive end ESL.
