FDDI to SCSI?  Not 100% impossible but it seems unlikely.  FDDI is a
network interface, similar to 100BaseT (but much more complex for no
benefit). 

You can run IP over it, of course.  And then you could run iSCSI, if
you don't mind the slow performance.  But FDDI was obsolete long
before iSCSI came out. So an FDDI to SCSI converter would have to be a
proprietary hack.
