External USB DAT160 not recognized as a tape drive

I've installed a USB DAT 160 tape drive on a Proliant DL360G5.
I've installed the latest DATTapeDriverInstaller drivers.
But now, I only see the drive in the USB devices as a HP USB Mass Storage Device (Location 0(DAT160 USB Tape)).
I do NOT see it in the tape library devices.
Therefore, I can not use it with ntbackup.

I've installed the latest HP LTT tool, but it does not see the drive as well.

Does anyone has an idea on the steps I have to follow to make it recognized as a tape drive?
thanks !
Gilles
