DLT2000 / Compaq 3300

Hi Everyone

I am looking for any info you might have for a DLT2000 (BIOS says DEC DLT2000) – but there is a sticker underneath as Compaq 3300. I have also seen references for it on the internet as TH3AA-HJ. It says 15/30 on the front.

HP L&T tools detects it as a DEC DLT2000 (firmware 840B) and says it is not supported.

Any pointers towards compatibility/manual/firmware would be much appreciated.

Re: DLT2000 / Compaq 3300

Many thanks Marino for the link. I did see this on quantumâ s web site, but was confused as they refer the DLT2000 as a 10/20Gb drive and the DLT2000XT as a 15/30Gb drive. They say that the TH3AA should be a DLT2000XT.

My drive is a TH3AA-HK, part number 70-60158-04 and as it says 15/30 â I assume it to be a DLT2000XT then but Quantumâ s drives end in YF and not HK â but I assume that might be because mine is a Compaq badged and not Quantum direct.

Anyway any ideas how to â copyâ the firmware they have on their web site to DLT tape so that I can upgrade the firmware. I am using Windows 2003 and Backup Exec. 10.

hi, it is a 15/30GB DLT Streamer. also known as DLT2000xt

you can test it with the old Compaq Tape Tool TSMC (tape storage management console). there is also a frw update function avaible... i think 068B was the last, but i'm not sure...

Many thanks Chris for confirming that.

I searched for TSMC and found version 2.3.3 for windows â but it does not install correctly (i.e. there are no files in the directory etcâ ¦) I tested the downloaded file in WinRAR and it is ok. I am using W2K3.

Reason I am still trying to get hold of this SW is because I have a few older DLT and DAT drivers and would really like to test them.

Does anyone have a link to an older version or maybe I need to try it on an older OS?

hi again :)

the tmsc tool only works with win 2k and win98. you have to install java to run tmsc via internet explorer...

i don't remember the correct url to access the web interface...

have you installed tmsc correctly?
