Help with old Compaq DLT library C5151C

Just wondering if anyone knows of a driver for XP for the library. I just need the driver for the loader, my backup software sees the drive, but not the loader. Is there a way of loading tapes from the front panel?

I haven't found much in the way of manuals, but here's some software that couldn't hurt to try.

Under "Tape Tools" there's a link for "HP Drivers". If it were my project, I'd test it out... nothing to loose.

There's also a thread here that *might* help
http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=427287

The 1st responder in that tthread attached a manual, but it's hard to say if it's for your dlt lib. Chapter 4 deals w/ the front panel of the lib.

Hope this helps,
