   Take a closer look; they might be SMD drives.  At least a few
companies produced SMD controllers that emulated the DG drives using
common SMD disks.  I've got one here that should attach to my S/140
and is a CDC drive with DG badging.  My S/130 has a Spectracom
(I think) controller that does SMD as well.  (Come to think of it,
my S/230 may have one as well.  I need to go digging in my Copious
Free Time....)
