I have an alternative solution.
I have about 30 Wangtek tapedrives that use the 'wt' driver. They are
external units with a 20Meg hard drive built in as a buffer. They weigh
about 5 pounds, but work just fine with the existing software. Anyone
that wants one can have it for shipping costs. E-Mail me an address and
we can set up the swap.
