SDLT I 160/320 GB tape drive compatibility

I have SDLT II 600GB Q2020A tapes. Are they compatible with the 160/320 GB SDLT I tape drive.

In terms of shape 600 GB tape looks very similar to the 160/320GB tape however, I can't seem to insert them in tape drive. I think the answer is obvious but I wanted to run this by just in case.

Seems I have got this mixed up as I had someone earlier with 300/600 GB SDLT tapes and it worked fine.
