Hi Stephane,
I Think what you need is the TapeWare Software to backup. Also make sure install Windows 2000 service pack 2 for this software to work properly.
This link will tell you more,

I don't want using the tapeware software come with the tape drive. I prefer use the NTbackup utility from Windows 2000

(The end customer preference !)

Stephane,
please check if RSM service is running (Removable Storage Manager). Maybe NT backup is basing on it.
Here's utility to check your drive functions correctly: HP LTT http://www.hp.com/cposupport/information_storage/support_doc/lpg50128.html
