I'm sending this to the list on purpose since others
may be interested.

I have 2 or 3 "caddy" type SCSI CD-ROM drives that
were in disk trays attached to sparcs.  You would
need a SCSI container to put them into (they are
too big for the SS5/SS20 bay) before you could
use them.  I'm not sure I have caddies for all of
them (but those are easier to find).

These are probably 1-2x speeds, 4x max (doubtful).
Pay for postage and it's yours.

Drop me an email if interested (I'm in CA).
