1/8 Ultrium AutoLoader (AA927A)

I'm trying to get NetBackup for Linux to recognize the new tapes in my Ultrium 460 autoloader. I'm wondering if anyone knows for certain if this drive has a barcode reader? It's a little misleading/confusing since the tapes came with barcodes.

Thanks!

If you think about 1/8 Ultrium 460 Tape Autoloader (PN: AA927A) answer is - no.
1/8 autoloader family is not equipment with intergrated barcode reader.
And tapes, prelabeled and without barcodes are in the same price.

A lot of customers will use barcodes to track their tapes outside of the autoloader so barcodes are recommended even though the 1/8 does not have a reader.
