Firmware update of dat lib on an NORMAL PC

How do i update the Firmware of that Compaq Dat library (archive 4586 np) connected to a NORMAL (NON CPQ) PC ???????
I've downloaded the corresponding softpaq and wrote my 3 floppies , floppy 3 with the rompaqs for the tapedrive. After booting from floppy the rompaq updater couldnt find any devices to upgrade .. but thats BS .. the device is connected and works properly .. so - what have i to do to get this new firmware into my drive ? (the new firmware file is Arc45np0.420 - - how do i flash the rom manually - hope ther's an option , or an undocumented flag in rompaq )

would be glad about an answer

ps - pls post the corresponding email adress for technical questions about tapedrives

best regards

Re: Firmware update of dat lib on an NORMAL PC

The tape drive must be attached to a Compaq controller in a Compaq Server to update the firmware .
