The tape drives for an internal and library are slightly different than a external tape drives. With an internal drive there are usually different firmware that tells the drive that there is a medium changer to move media. With an external standalone drive, the firmware does not have the medium changer enabled. If you set all the dip switches correctly and you are still not able to get the drive to login, then it comes down to the code that is on the drive that is set to external & not internal. The code is set at the factory for the tape drives and can’t be flashed with a firmware upgrade.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
