My recollection is that it does, along with the older Apple CD-ROM
drive (1x), but I wouldn't have used it on a SPARC for about 10 years
(I used to have an ancient Sony drive for my SPARC-1 in 1994, and I
*think* I used an Apple drive after the Sony drive died). That was
back in my SunOS days, which are getting increasingly eclipsed (pun
intended) by my ongoing Solaris experience (by 1996, I'd stopped working
with SunOS entirely, in favor of Solaris).
