No Data Compression with C1537A

I replaced this unit recently with another unit from HP. I've noticed that I'm not getting compression. When I run the "Tape Tools" test it comes up as 1:1. I can't find any info on how to enable compression for this unit anywhere. How do I do it? MC

Take it out, turn it over and flip dip switch 3rd from the left up. FYI, there is documentation out there on the drive. Either do a search on forums or out on the web.
