Failing to choose correct Tape drive

We have an HP Proliant DL380 G4 server with DAT72 internal scsi tape drive. Now we want to upgrade the tape drive to a DAT160 internal scsi tape drive. Can someone help with the correct model number of the drive that can fit. I have been browsing on the net but I dont seem to find (know) the right drive. SOS

Re: Failing to choose correct Tape drive


It seems like your DL server is not compatible with the DAT160 Internal drive,

You can verify this by going to and then click on "Tape Backup Compatibility".

This is the direct link for your server and the 160 drive:
