Re: DLT-8000 firmware

I have never heard of a DLT 8000 tape library 8189 please provide more details. Just a count of slots and drives should help.

Never use Quantum firmware in an HP tape drive. It shouldn't download at all but it sounds like it did in your case. An HP tape library will not be able to use most Quantum firmware. Standalone firmware will not work in a tape library and even the library firmware versions have different behavior for different libraries. I think the version you downloaded is for standalone drives and will not work in any tape library.

To use the drive in an HP tape library again you will need to get the HP firmware back into the drive. That may be impossible at this point. Try the LTT tool and see if it can recognize the drive and download.
