Replacing 230 Drives with 960

Would like to replace the two internal Ultrium 230 tape drives on a 2/20 HP Surestore Rack Library with two LTO-3 Ultrium 960 Drives. Is it doable and can the 2/20 handle the new tape format/drive speed?;has anyone done it? Thanks

A surestore 2/20 doesn't support LTO-3.

You need a replace the complete Library.
