PC Assist shows two drives compatible drives, the 60 and 120MB, both ESDI
Direct Bus Attach, MFM encoded. This applies to models A61, A21, B61, B21.

I wonder though if there aren't other ESDIs out there that will work as
long as they're DBA? You might check with MicroHaus (sp?) to see if they
have any larger cpacity NOS drives that will work. Just a shot in the dark.
