Manuals for the some of the older pre merger Compaq libraries do not appear to be on the external website.

I think you have the 15 slot, 2000XT, 1 drive library.

This manual is small enough that I'll attach it here.

Hi,

I couldn't find anything for the c5151c. I wonder if the c5151f is what you mean. Have a look here:

For a bit of history, variations of the HP 4x15/7x15 products were OEMed and sold by Compaq. They were slightly different than the HP products, and included a 2000XT drive version (to which the 242403-B21 number refers to).

The manual I attached earlier should be the right one.

Well, at least I tried.

If HP decides to hide those manuals, than there is of course little chance to find something.;-)

I just wonder that there is no reference to c5151c or the part number in the manual.

I don't think HP tried to hide the manuals.

The folks involved with converging the support websites were not always experts on the products, and thought some of the products were the same, and incorprated content from just one of the pre merger companies. As an example, the DDS drives were different. There's a project to get the correct pm CPQ manuals on the website.

I'm not sure where the reference to C5151C is, except that may be the product inquiry string. You were definately close :=)

Thanks to everyone that provided an answer -- everyone is right -- I sometimes wish that they would not merge the legacy documents cause nothing seems to show up no matter what I use for a search query. Oh well thats progress.

Thomas,

It's a bit too late for your needs, but I'm going to see if I can get the legacy content for the tape libraries and drives more clearly identified, and also get the missing pre-merger Compaq content back on-line.
