No there is not, they are both SCSI random-access devices, contrast
to tapes, with are sequential-access devices. The SCSI layer uses
different I/O commands (and commands structures) for those two
classes of devices.

That said... I believe the KZQ doesnt do any (T)MSCP emulation, or
it has one that is switcheable (like the Emulex UC07/8). I have seen
it used with both classes of devices.
