Install LTT http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/ltt/index.html
If this machine is not connected to inet and LTT is not able to download firmwares then try
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/information_storage/software/ltt/firmware/

Hello Eugeny,
Thanks very much for the reply, but at the risk of sounding totally stupid, how do I relate the frm files to my 35\70 drive?

Cheers

Install LTT. Download all the files beginning with 'LTT_DLT', copy them into LTT's firmware directory, and try ungrading firmware. If there will be files matching your drive model in this firmware directory then they will be availble to update drive's firmware. As soon as your drive CPQ one then I guess drive's personality is "CPQ" (not OML, OMX etc).
In case your machine can see inet then LTT will automatically grab needed files from HP ftp site
