The old 718 Autoloader do not have a pn for the drive, all the box is exchanged, see partsurfer for details

Thanks for the response.

So basically the drive itself is unreplaceable?

Re: Surestore 718 Drive model

I cannot give You info about the matching between the Sun and the HP model, looking at the manual it seems similar, but as usual each vendor use a dedicated FW, and each drive have a personality that will prevent to change fw from a vendor with a FW from another, then probably using parts form Sun on a HP model will result in communication error between controller and drive.

With the DLT drives the import thing is what firmware is on the drives. The 718 uses OML3 firmware but there are reports that it also works correctly with OMX.

Thanks everyone, I did in fact verify that the model IS a quantum TH6XF-RH.
