Oh my, what am I going to do with these MDI SCSI CD boxes? I have 3 or 4 of 
them, each one containing seven CD-ROM drives, a power supply, and some 
kind of logical unit controller, so all 7 drives appear a LUNs under one 
SCSI address.

The drives are Toshiba XM-5301B, a 4x tray-type (doesn't need caddies) that 
works sideways or in the more usual orientation.

Specs here, from
CD-ROM Mode 1 -data discs
CD-ROM Mode 2 - data discs
CD-DA audio discs
CD-DA/ROM - Mixed mode/combined
CD-ROM XA and Photo CD (Single and Multisession)
CD-Bridge (White book, Video CD)
CD-I, CD-I ready

The cabinets are 17" but with ears for std rack mount, 7 inches high, depth 
behind the rack 20 inches.

Anyone (local) want some? Anyone got any ideas what to DO with them?
