Updating DAT40 firmware

My problem relates to updating the firmware in a SureStor DAT40 drive. The device is firmware vesion C005, I have gone to the web site to download the firmware update C5683a_c104.frm but when I go into TapeTools to update firmware it looks for files with a .hp extension. So is this the correct update for the drive and if so how do I install it?

the file is with the corect extention to be used with Library and Tape Tools, this is the tool, this software can download directly the bios from hp site and recognize and diag your tape device.the last version is 2.7 rel 2 and in a few days available release 3

Got it fixed ok. The problem was the version of Tape Tools that came on the CD with the DAT40 drive was too old. Dowloaded and installed the new one and all ok. Cheers
