What a cool topic! I just got one, and coincidentally, I just spent half a
day finding out if there was such a thing as a minidisk drive for a PC.
There is. Its the Sony MDH-10, However, I only found a listing on the Sony
Japanese site. You can get specifications from the Sony Fast fact Fax line,
in English. Its basically a Minidisk player with a SCSI port. The surprise
was the capacity rating, 140 Mb. How do I get a whole CD on a Minidisk
then? I have converted most of my CDs, much more durable and convenient.

Now, all we need is a driver for the PCMCIA SCSI cards for the Newton.......
