URGENT: Data recovery assistance needed in New Haven, CT area (cctalk)

There were several different size & standards of magneto-optical drives
used. The 5 1/4 inch ones were either 128MB or 256MB usually.

I've got a 128MB drive. I haven't used it in a while, so I don't know for
sure if it works. It's a SCSI drive. If you don't come up with anything
better, I can probably let you borrow the drive, but I can't (a) guarantee
the drive works, or (b) guarantee that it will read your disks. Also, you're
probably on your own for a SCSI adapter and drivers for whatever system you
want to connect it to.

Not sure what kind of data you're working with, I Know you mentioned HIPAA.
The company I work for (CT Renaissance) is involved with some substance
abuse treatment research at Yale.

	Hopefully there is someone nearby who can help.
At work here, we need to recover some old data on Canon Magneto-Optical 
discs. I don't have them in my hand at the moment, so I can't give model 
details yet, but IIRC, they are roughly the size of 5 1/4 floppies. And 
to make things more fun, we can't find the drive that they were used in.

	Does anyone have one we could buy, or borrow? Or leads on who to
to? And no, we cannot send the discs out, due to HIPAA privacy rules. 
The drive would need to be used here at Yale.

	Reply to me directly. Thanks in advance.
