Firmware Upgrade

I am trying to upgrade a Compaq DLT 8000 @ 0119(V25) Firmware to the version of my other drives with the Tape Storage Management Console.
The required version I require is 011A so I can group all the drives together in Arcserve IT.
When attempting to download the firmware file, dlt8000_v26_cpq-2.tz_image to the DLT drive I get the message ERROR(5) during download and the message reads "Sense Key: ILLEGAL REQUEST ASC: 0x24 ASCQ: 0x8e".
I am using a Proliant 1500 with SmartStart 4.90 and have been successfull in doing a couple of DLT 35/70's. Have tried using a ML370 but get the same message. Both attempts have been with the onboard SCSI card and no tape in the drive.

Can any one HELP !!!!
