Hi Dean,

You should have no problem swapping out the tape drive. We used an HP LTO-5 OEM tape mechanism model AQ280A, equivalent to their Ultrium 3000 Half Height SAS Internal Tape Drive.

The only problems you might encounter would be from not ensuring that all connectors and boards are reseated properly. You should also carefully retain and reapply the kapton tape securing the SAS connector to the drive.

Good luck,
Tom
