Erm, you're right. I misunderstood the description.

Looks like everybody's selling the adaptors to let you re-use SCA-80 
drives, not the other way 'round.

Pages of them show up in a search, and some vendors are putting the word 
"RARE!" in their description. This must be some new meaning of the word 
"rare" I wasn't previously aware of. :/

Ah well.
