Hi,

In this document you can find instructions how to create device files for Ultrium drives.

http://h200005.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/lpg28833/lpg28833.pdf

To create a uncompressed file:
mksf -H -a -b U_18

thanks, i'm not sure how i missed that earlier posting. i've verified that "-b U_18" works correctly.
