I don't think so. The R400X could have SCSI or DSSI drives in it, there was 
simply a different mounting "box" (I've got one if someone needs one :-) 
The 400X then had both a DSSI plug and a SCSI plug on the side where you 
wired into it and you used the one that was appropriate and put a big red 
cover on the other one.

I've got a lead on a CMD DSSI to SCSI converter, this is a box that talks 
DSSI on one side and can talk to SCSI disks on the other side.
