Yes, but not me. IIRC, it needs to be a TK50Z-GA. Keep in mind the drive
is only 95MB, so is really only of use if you've got DEC HW.

Um, unless you've got the 'clear sleave', I don't think you're going to get
the disk out without demolishing the drive! As long as that's the drive I'm
thinking of it uses a funky 'pincer' holder for the CD, with a clear
'sleave' around it to make up the 'caddy'. You stick the caddy in the drive
and pull the 'sleave' back out. To remove the CD, you stick the 'sleave' in
and pull out the whole caddy. (hopefully that makes sense)

Any idea if this is a SCSI drive? There are two varients of this, one is
SCSI, the other connects to a Q-Bus controller.
