     My VAX 4000-300 is the same way. It's an RA81 when empty and an 
RRD40 when a CD is in it. If the SCSI ID number is set to 0,1,2 or 3, 
it shows up as a disk. If the number if 4 or higher, it shows up as a 
tape. My SCSI to Q-bus card has an MMJ jack that allows you to 
reconfigure the defaults, but I have no documentation for it.
