autoloader 1/8 g2

Can I remove a LTO3 HP drive and install a LT05 Ultrium 3000?


What is the difference Autoloader 1/8 G2 used with LTO3 and the Autoloader 1/8 G2 used with LTO5?

LTO 3 and LTO 4 uses SCSI or SAS 3 Gbit. While LTO5 uses SAS 6bit.

As far as I can tell the autoloader is the same - SAS-connectors etc are on the drive.

But if you can? I can't see an option for just an LTO5 drive in the quickspecs.
