The RRD42 is (IIRC) a Sony unit (possibly
with modified firmware). It takes
a "standard" caddy.

The RRD40 is a much older Philips(?)
CD-ROM (1x) and it takes a caompletely
different form of CD holder (often
referred to as "antlers").

FWIW: the RRD43 is a tray-loader and
the RRD44 is back to a caddy. The
first DEC CDROM drive was the RRD50, which
was essentially a tabletop, caddyless
(flip open the top and load CD)
RRD40 (except, I believe, *slower*!!).

I have at least one RRD40 CD holder,
which I can supply if noone nearer
can dig one up (I'm in the UK).
