HP DAT72 firmware update files disappeared in HP FTP ?

Hello,

I'm still running several SCSI and USB DAT72 tape drives and wanted to update firmware on DAT 72 USB with LTT tool v4.18. (Yes, I know they're very old and out of support)
LTT tool recognizes newer firmware versions, but could not download any of them from ftp.hp.com.

Manual search with ftp client showed FTP folders to be completely empty.
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/information_storage/software/ltt/

Where can I download the DAT72 firmware files ? (.frm)

Or can somebody send the FRM files to me ?

Actually I'm looking for
ltt_hp_c7438a_zu8b.frm or ltt_hp_c7438a_zu75.frm

Thanks a lot.

That file is no longer there. The last DAT 72 (non-USB) firmware I have come across is ZUD4, but if you know where to find something newer, by all means let me know where to find that.

 

Thank you.

Thank you very much, I try to update with the program "HP LTT" but it gives me the following error.

SCSI WriteBuffer failure With Exception Code : 2107
I/O: Target device of I/O request does not exist

And on other occasions these other errors:
SCSI TUR failure with Sense Condition
Sense Information: Sensekey: 0x4, ASC/ASCQ: 0x40/0x2 (Diagnostic Failure on FRU 2 - Mechanism Error)

 

What program have you used? Thank you

I have managed to leave it in OBDR mode.

Does anyone know how a bootable cartridge is made?
