Goal

Description
Code requirements for IBM or ADIC LTO Drives Converted to be used in Oracle/STK SL8500 Modular Library System.
If a customer has purchased drive conversion trays to support drives previously installed in IBM or ADIC libraries and are now converting them to run in the SL8500 library, they should be made aware that the Oracle/StorageTek code available on the Code website has a special personality that is used with Oracle/Storage original equipment drives.  This code will NOT work in drives that come from IBM or ADIC directly.
