Re: tape cartridges compatibility

Hello,

Anybody please confirm that whether Ultruim 2 IBM P/N 08L9870 200GB cartridges works with our HP tape library MSL6030?? as MSL6030 supports Ultrium 3.

Thanks

From my experience, you can use any cartridge brands.

Re: tape cartridges compatibility

LTO 3 technology is backwards compatible 2 generations so it can accept all the way back to LTO 1 tapes...

So that answer is yes... LTO 3 drive can accept LTO 2 media tapes... but the drive will only perform at the LTO 2 specs.
