MSL6060 Tape Drive Question

We have a MSL 6060 (6 * LTO3 Drives) with 3 NSRs. I would like to upgrade the drives to LTO 5. Is it possible to do in this Unit?

THanks!

Darren,

I dont think that the MSL6060 can be upgraded to use LTO5 drives.
When i look in the quickspecs of the MSL6060 there is no mention of LTO5 Drives.

"http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c00356969〈=en&cc=us&taskId=101&prodSeriesId=316040&prodTypeId=12169"

PS, copy paste everything between the "" in an internet explorer.

AFAIK the LTO4 drives are the latest and greatest for this model.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your responses... I guess LTO 4 is as high as I can get on this one... I was hoping a firmware update would give me the capability of LTO5. Thank you for your time!
