Sounds like this device uses the same "stringy floppy" tape as the A&J
Microdrive and the Wafadrive.

Try comp.sys.sinclair. Be advised that Entrepo made two types -- A and B.
Same tape, different housing. I have A&J drives (one each A and B type)
hung off my TS2068.

The drives are slow, and the tapes are extremely fragile, to the point that
I rarely use the drives any more, in order not to destroy my few remaining
