I have the opportunity to buy a discarded LTO-5 drive at a bargain price, specifically HP Ultrium 3280 ESL LTO-5 FC. It is a full height mechanics with a sled.

Mechanically, it seems that after removing the sled, it should not be a problem to connect it, however, I am afraid that the firmware / configuration part will be a problem.

Does anyone have experience with this? Is it possible to reconfigure / reflash the ESL version to the standalone version?
