SureStore DLT80 tape drives

Hi,

 

I have a SureStore DL80 tape drive but I want to know the part number of it. Its internal but it has two stickers on it each with a different number - C5725 and C7456. Which one is correct?

 

Many thanks,

 

Mark P.

Re: SureStore DLT80 tape drives

According to partsurfer.hp.com:

 

C5725A - HP DLT 80 Internal (flint) Tape Drive

 

C7456A - SureStore DLT 80m Low Voltage Differential SCSI (LVDS) DLT tape drive module

 

So, it could be either one.

 

What does 'ioscan -kfnC tpae' show?

C5725A is on the drive itself, C7456A is on the metal frame.

Usually when I call in a part to HP for replacement, they want the part number that ends in -001

Re: SureStore DLT80 tape drives

Part numbers like

A1234-69001 are classic HP spare parts,

123456-001 are classic compaq numbers.

Nowadays you can find both, depending on the product.

Some tape drive even have both numbers.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
