Looking at my TF86 drive, there is a card that has a DSSI connector
and on the other end, just like the scsi/TK-interface adaptor card in the
scsi-TK50s and TK70s, is the same connector and thinner cable that the
other TK drives have as their native interface. The impression I got was
that the dssi card was just a dssi TK adaptor.
a test would be to put the dlt drive on a tk70 controller or put a tk50
or such drive on the dssi card and see if either of them showed up on the
other interface... never tried it though
