Tape Drive Troubleshooting Tools

In my journeys troubleshooting tape drives with various technical supports, I've noticed a pattern. Up to this point, every tape drive has an accompanying tool for testing (and sometimes configuring) tape drives. Here's a list of the links I've acquired so far:
  1. HP Tape Drives - HP Storageworks Library and Tape Tools (click "Link to free download" to get started)
  2. Dell Tape Drives - Dell OpenManage Server Administrator series (Obtained by disc or download, offered per device on driver support site)
    1. xDrive for Certance/Quantum-based drives.
As I run into the drives and tools again, I'll update this list.
