    All these libraries are also compatible with Data Protection Manager 2010 if the drive supports a 64 KB-block size.

    and

    The fact that a tape library is not listed below does not mean that it is not compatible only that it has not yet been tested. If you have questions about the table or a specific tape library not listed, please address this in the DPM newsgroup or send an e-mail to: dpmtlts@microsoft.com.

    so it really only means that your model has not yet been tested, but it doesn't mean that not work :) !

  • Hi Thomas,

     The guidance we're giving customers is if the tape library or standalone tape drive is listed on the Windows server catalog under the hardware / storage section and shows compatible with Windows 2008 X64, then it should work fine with DPM 2010.

    Also leverage the DPM 2007 compatibility list, anything on this list should work on DPM2010 if they have Windows 2008 X64 drivers.
