It has been a LONG time since I've had a 3590. My evolution on AS/400
(then IBM i) tape was "something" like:
QIC (various sizes)
with an 8mm thrown in there somewhere but we maybe only used it for vendor
software. I can't remember.
I can't remember if the 3590 had a menu system to power it down or some
such thing. My LTO libraries seem to have such a thing. But even so, I
often use the web interface to it instead.
