It has an XT-IDE interface (40-pin) inside _and_ a SCSI interface (50-
pin). The external connector is a DB-25 wired for SCSI like a MacPlus.
The SCSI chip inside is a Western Digital WD33C93. Given the external
connector, I don't _think_ that it's SCSI-2 Fast, but it's been a long
time since I've had to configure an Amiga SCSI chain.

Anyway... the critical info is a) SCSI & XT-IDE, b) SCSI external via
DB-25, c) WD33C93 chip to drive it all, and d) vertical clearance for
a 1.6"-tall 3.5" drive. Given all of that, you should be able to
determine compatibility with what you want to hookup.
