OK You need your secret decoder ring!

You were in the right place if you found the library code.

I'm stuck in '10 million fan hell' right now without time to look exactly but you need to make your download option HTTP as I recall. Once you do that you get a link to a huge list of drive firmware for LTO2/3 or so up to LTO7 with every flavor of fibre/SAS/ScSI full high half high blah blah. Once there you'll find the right one in 30 seconds or less.

I was able to find the latest firmware for my 3576 (aka TS3310) at Fix
Central. However, I cannot find the latest firmware for the fiber channel
LTO4 drives in it.
The library firmware is at 660G.GS007 and I may upgrade it to 670G.GS003.
The drives themselves are all at C7QH and according to the
Qualified_Drive_Code_Information.txt that came down with 670G.GS003 that
is current for those drives.

My concern is that am waiting for IBM to come deliver a replacement drive
and if it's been sitting on a shelf too long it may be outdated with
firmware and I like to have a copy to upgrade it to. Ain't my first
rodeo. Although, to IBM's credit, often it's been the other way. Their
drive is newer and I have to upgrade all the others. The library can get
a bit snooty if the drives aren't all the same firmware level.
