Exabyte 8200 vs. 8205

For you 8mm tape fans out there, is the Exabyte 8205 drive simply an 
8200 with different firmware--or are the electronics completely 
different?  In other words, can I upgrade an 8200 to an 8205 without 
changing the PCB out?

More of an item of curiosity now--I've got a bunch of Solaris tapes 
written on an 8205, but they're written in 8200 mode, so it doesn't 
really matter.
