Re: HP Surestore Tape 2000 DDS

These are really old drives... I believe they were manufactured before 1999.

They are EOL, not in support and not being manufactured.

For a hardware error like this, try flashing the firmware with HP Storagewroks Library & Tape tools (LTT).

But when these types of drives fail with a hardware error it usually means they need to be replaced.

Best bet is to try e-bay for refurbished products. They will not be under support by HP and are not eligible for warranty.
