Great, now I've got what may be a 9-track drive that works (not tested yet
of course)

Hmmm, not very useful for me, anyone on the list want it for the cost of
shipping (say $5.00?) [it comes with the cable as well.]

Nope, gunmetal grey. (or is that gray?) anyway two pull handles at the
front, pull out to the loud click and get to "rotate" mode, the slides
