can I connect a DEC DLT 2000 to my HP LC 2000?

I have a HP LC 2000 server and old DLT (Dec DLT 2000) from my old server.
I want to use old DLT with my new server but I don??t know if they are compatibles or not.
Could anyone help me?, please.

As long as you have the right interface card and cables, and a device driver (perhaps the standard windows driver supports it), you should be OK.

The DLT 2000 drives were narrow SCSI (50 pin, low-density). They had both single-ended and high-voltage diff, so make sure your host interface card matches.

Here's a dell website with some product info:
