   I think so but I'm not sure. But not the big 8" wide cartridges. There
are about 5 1/4" wide. Actually also I need a couple of 20 Mb 8"

   The complete drive unit is made by Bering but it uses to Bernoulli
drives. It has a HP-IB interface and was sold for use with the HP
computers. IEM made similar drives. I have some of both.
