HP LTO-5 Ultrium 3000 Support



I need help with this drive that I bought second-hand.

HP Library and Tape Tools say that the drive is in perfect shape, but that's all about it. I can't update the firmware (current version Z64D), nor I can assign a drive letter to use it as an LTFS drive. Maybe I need HPE StoreOpen for that purpose, but I am unable to find a download to check if it's true. 


Thank you for your input.

Thank you for your response.


The first link is broken and the second I'm already familiar with. Is it possible to get a download link for HPE StoreOpen? Thank you in advance.
