What Drivers for 35/70 in NT4

I have 5 DL380s with 35/70 DLTs 2 DLT have firmware which say Quantum DLT7000, the others say Compaq 35/70GB DLT.
I can load the drivers for the DLT7000 ok but cant get drivers to load for the 35/70I have tried sp4429 and sp13019 but they say no device detected. In the add tape device the drives are detected as Compaq 35/70 DLT, the dlt7000 drivers don't work

Can anyone suggest where I can get the right drivers?

thanks

Niall

Re: What Drivers for 35/70 in NT4

I've got the 35/70 drive and am running it under Win2k Pro using NT4 drivers. However, I can't be sure which pack I installed. I Tried SP13026, SP13161 and SP13019 and one of them worked, although I'm not sure which. Using the Add Hardware option and manually selecting tape drives then gave me the option of the correct drive. If it works under Win2k it should work under NT4. The other option is to use the SP4429 file and use the DLT7000.SYS driver which should give the correct model choice in Add/Remove Hardware
Sorry I can't be more specific
