hi,

if you've lto4 drives in your library use lto4 cartridges, if lt03 use lto3 cartridges. the lto drives are backwards compatible though.

Just to add to what the last person said.

LTO drives are compatible with last version for read/write, but can only read the version later to that.

Eg- LTO 4 drive can do this:-

Read/Write Only Read
---------- ---------
LTO4 Tape LTO2 Tape
LTO3 Tape
