DLT8000

Maybe someone can help me out.

I have a spare DLT8000 Product number C6378A
and want to hook it up to an IBM RS6000 7013 UX server. Will this work? Is it compatible?

Its worth a shot...

Re: DLT8000

I don't have the part numbers available right now, but watch out for High Voltage Differential versus Low Voltage Differential. You may need a converter.

Re: DLT8000

According to hp partsurfer:

> 40/80GB Fast Wide Differential DLT8000 Desktop Digital Linear Tape (DLT) Drive

As long as you have a F/W High Voltage (HVDS) interface card, 68-pin cable, HVDS terminator, and you configure the correct DLT driver, you should be all set.

Note: The HP drives respond with Quanum's inquiry string (QUANTUM DLT8000), which most drivers should recognize.
The journey IS the reward.
