That was the MT-02 and QIC-36, not QIC-02 interface.

That's a thought. My experience with the OMTI/SMS adapters have
mixed results. Mostly, the command set they support does not include
the IDENTIFY command, which leads to all sorts of problems if your
software or SCSI controller locates peripherals in this manner.
A Tandberg 4220 looks like a pretty good bet for a "read
anything/write some" drive.
