    I think you won't be able to find such a "prehistoric" piece.
The DEC part number for it is : 29-27338-01. You can try the DEC office
near to you .
   I have one in my desk but you have to come to Brazil to pick it up.

    The RRD40  driver don't have  any control buttom  on it. All you
have to do is insert the caddy with the disc inside, then the external 
coverture of the caddy will be released . For dismounting, just insert
the coverture and it will be released with the disc inside.

  Good luck !! ( You will need !!! )
