Shoot... I knew I was forgetting something.. sorry
On the 8505, there are three led's. top, middle and bottom...
If, while writing, the middle led is green, the drive is NOT doing
If, it is amber, it IS doing compression...
This is in the Exabyte manual, and I was able to verify this is indeed
Also, if the top and bottom are flashing, it needs to have the heads
Hope this is useful.
