Password for HP tape utilities

Can anyone tell me the engineer passwords for HP tape utilities? I want to flash firmware to an older version on one drive and change the hardware ID on another. (yes, i know that i may damage the drive...)

If you don't want to post the password on this site, please send it to dan@rimer.org

Sorry. These passwords are sensitive to the day of the month and year, the passwords they give you, and themselves, are only good for a few days at a time. This is based upon my personal experience as a sys admin.
