The 70 came out ONLY with ESDI, the Reply upgrade and other aftermarket
controllers would give IDE, but not the factory. I have tons of various ESDI
drives I need to sell off too, all 3.5" from 20mb to (maybe) 120mb.

Have you seen these drives? They're nothing like IDE. They don't even
use the ESDI standard one-signal/two-data cables. It plugs into a
doohickey similar to the ST-506 doohickey on the Mod 50.
