For such kind of activities, HP is the correct source to advice from.

Log a case to HP and accordingly they will assist you in a right way.

Re: Need to upgrade the firmware of tape drives

The library already has the latest firmware.

For the drives download LTT + the drive fw bundle and use it.

Hope this helps!
