well the FW for c7200-8000 is now 1710, you can upgrade the library with L&TT, tha will download automaticaly or manualy the firmware from the web, or you can upgrade wia lan with remote controller card, and the W is here:

Re: Tape C7200-8000 firmaware

thanks, but in the web page http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?locBasepartNum=co-14644-3〈=English+%28US%29&locale=en_US indicate the following:

*Libraries with DLT 8000 drives CAN NOT be directly upgraded from 1140(or earlier) to 1250(or later). Bridge to 1220 before proceeding.

it is correct?

if no, I upgrade the firmware from your instructions, but I want to be safe.

Re: Tape C7200-8000 firmaware

the indicatipon is correct, some changes have been performed in the cmos map between these version, so you need to flash the bridge version in the midle.
But in your case, you already have the version 1250, so any further update can be made safely.
Just update to last version.
