No way.....the TL891 is totally unsuitable for ULTRIUM drives of any flavour for many reasons - different size cartridges/ different SCSI bus/no controller or firmware support/ incorrect mounting hardware/etc....etc..etc.

You need to upgrade to one of the MSL series units, or an HP 1/8 autochanger.

Re: TL891DLX to LTO3

well i just want to confirm we need to replace DLT LIBRARY TL891LDX, i just want to confirm if it would be better for us or not...as a library has to be replaced with LTO3 single drive. would you recommend for how long should i have to maintain my old backup cartridges.
