Note 1 HP device driver 1.0.7.0 works with LTO-6 cartridges but it  has a bug when used with LTO-5 cartridges : this combination of LTO-6 drives and LTO-5 cartridges does not support LTFS. The problem is fixed in version 1.0.7.1.
Note 2 Please use driver version 1.0.6.3 (HP device driver 1.0.7.0 has a bug when used with LTO-5 drives and LTO-5 cartridges : it does not support LTFS.)
Note 3 LTO-4 drives do not support LTFS. The HP LTO-4 drive is certified for use with the TAR format.
Note 4 The IBM device drivers are installed from an executable IBM installer. Please use the 'exclusive' installer.
Note 5 Tandberg drivers are available from www.tandbergdata.com. The Vista X64 driver should be used, even though it is being used on a Windows 7 X64 computer. The Tandberg LTO-5 drive is not certified for use with LTFS.
Note 6 Tandberg device driver 1.0.7.0 works with LTO-6 cartridges but has a bug when used with LTO-5 cartridges: this combination of LTO-6 drives and LTO-5 cartridge does not support LTFS. The problem is fixed in 1.0.7.1. However Tandberg have yet to release this version, so you should currently use the HP driver. Contact XenData support if you need assistance.
