But they built an additional controller half the size of two drives ( for theQuote:>In fact, DEC OEMed CDC's 14" SMD drives as the RM03 and RM05 and someone elses

RM05) so I'm not sure you could use it as a straight SMD drive even if you
wanted to. It looks like MASSBUS to the Vaxen.

beautiful and fast SMD drives, so you can put fast low power disks on your
old SUN etc. Probably not worth the effort on an Amiga. One could buy it and
trade it for a SCSI disk if the price is right.
