technical manuals / linux commandlines for LTO-5?

Hi all,


I'm using HP LTO-5 external drives and they're working just great, but now it's time

to automate things and I'm wondering if there are any technical manuals or linux

command lines to do the following in Linux:


  • enable/disable compression
  • read/write the cartridge memory
  • seek to a given byte

I imagine there are SCSI commands to do all of these but I haven't been able

to find any documentation.
