I just got in the mail the other day a Product Specification package from
Seagate for the Tapestor 3200. I would venture to guess that communication
to the drive is pretty much the same. It also uses the QIC-117 command set or so
the manual says. At the moment I just don't have time to play with it, and get
my drive running but, if/when I do I will post here.
